School of Humanities and Sciences dean steps down July 1

Vincent Wang, dean of the School of Humanities and Sciences, has stepped down from his position. 

Wang will be on sabbatical for the 2018-2019 academic year, but will be returning to the Department of Politics as a tenured professor. Michael Richardson, professor in the Department of Modern Languages and Literature, will be taking over the position on an interim basis. His position began July 1. Richardson also served as interim dean of the school from June 2015 to June 2016. 

Correction: A previous version of this article incorrectly stated that Vincent Wang will be on sabbatical for the Fall semester. Wang will be on sabbatical for the entire 2018-2019 academic year.
