John Anderson John Anderson Reappointed to Second Term as Engineering Dean

John L. Anderson has been reappointed to a second five-year term as dean of the university's engineering college, the Carnegie Institute of Technology (CIT).

"John Anderson has been a tremendous leader during the five years in which he has served as CIT dean, on behalf of his college and on behalf of the university at large," said Provost Mark Kamlet. "I am very grateful that John has been willing to serve for another five-year term at the helm."

Kamlet said that CIT remains one of the bedrock strengths of Carnegie Mellon and that the university has ambitious goals for engineering in the coming years in education and research. He said some of the key growth areas for the university include the biomedical and health engineering sectors. He also said Carnegie Mellon must continue to attract and retain top engineering faculty and graduate students.

"On all these fronts, Dean Anderson has been and will continue to be a galvanizing force, and the president and I look forward to his continued leadership," Kamlet said.

Anderson, who has been at Carnegie Mellon since 1976, said he is extremely grateful to be reappointed as dean of one of the best engineering colleges in the United States.

"We have a great group of department heads, faculty and staff and I look forward to continuing our work over the next five years," Anderson said.

Anderson, the Robert Mehrabian university professor of chemical engineering, is a member of the National Academy of Engineering and is a recipient of the Professional Progress Award of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers and a Guggenheim Fellowship. He served on the faculty of Cornell University for five years before joining Carnegie Mellon.

Anderson has a bachelor's degree from the University of Delaware and a doctor's degree from the University of Illinois. His research interests include transport through membranes and other porous media, colloid science, electrokinetic phenomena, polymer dynamics at interfaces, fluid dynamics and bioengineering.
