Checking in With Dean Forbes -- April 2018

What are you most excited about at the moment?
We’re in the midst of interviewing candidates for a new head of the Department of Biology Teaching and Learning. It’s a key role, and we’re pleased to have a handful of strong applicants. Ensuring that we find the very best person to lead the department and advance the work happening in BTL is critical. We also have a new major -- Organismal and Cellular Physiology -- thanks to the efforts of Associate Dean for Graduate Education John Ward and others.
