Correction: Dr. Jacobs is still on staff at the University.
Earlier today, University President John DeGioia announced the appointment of UCLA professor Martin Y. Iguchi as Dean of the School of Nursing & Health Studies starting July 1.
Iguchi currently serves as chair of the Department of Community Health Sciences in the School of Public Health at the University of California, Los Angeles. He is also the former director of the RAND Corporation’s Drug Policy Research Center.
According to his profile on the UCLA website, Iguchi’s recent research concentrates on the sexual behaviors of drug users and the exacerbating effect of drug criminalization on health disparities in the Black and Hispanic communities.
Iguchi will replace Interim Dean Julie Deloia, who assumed the post on July 1, 2010. The last permanent dean of the NHS was former Dean Bette Jacobs, who
retired left the position in 2010 after 11 years of service to the University.

In an e-mail sent to the Georgetown community this afternoon, President John DeGioia announced the appointment of William M. Treanor as the new Dean of the Georgetown Law Center, effective August 16.
Treanor has been the Dean of Fordham Univerisity’s School of Law since 2002. During his time at Fordham, Treanor became known for offering students free ice cream and cupckaes during exams, as well as gifting flip-flops to every student prior to summer vacation. For his involvement with the student body, The New York Sun dubbed Treanor “an activist dean” in a 2006 profile.
“I’m trying to encourage a family feeling at the school,” Mr. Treanor told the Sun.
As an expert in constitutional law, Treanor also served as a member of Fordham Law’s faculty, as the Deputy Attorney General in the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Council, and as the associate independent council during the Iran/Contra investigation.
Treanor will replace Judith Areen, who has served as Interim Dean since the departure of T. Alexander Aleinikoff in early December.

After Robert Gallucci left us for the MacArthur Foundation last year, the School of Foreign Service has been hunting for a new Dean. And it seems that Georgetown’s looking high and low—even taking the search to the internet! Vox recently found an ad for the position on the Chronicle of Higher Education‘s job posting board.
Besides calling up the amusing mental image of Georgetown’s top administrators trolling the Internet for potential Dean candidates, the posting is also interesting in that it reveals some tidbits about the generally secretive Dean selection process.
The posting was put up on October 23rd, and says that “the School of Foreign Service search committee will proceed expeditiously and has already begun reviewing materials, but applications will be considered until the position is filled.”
Interested parties are instructed to send their nominations or “expressions of interest” to an email account run by executive search consulting firm Spencer Stuart. Unfortunately the ad doesn’t list a salary or position description.
