Carnegie Mellon University has reappointed Michael J. Tarr head of the Department of Psychology.
“Mike is a great scholar, a great leader, and a great citizen,” said Richard Scheines, Bess Family Dean of the Dietrich College of Humanities and Social Sciences. “He has expertly managed a complicated department, hired great new faculty, and helped me take the university to the next level in neuroscience. He has also devoted a great deal of time and effort to improving the department’s practices and processes with respect to diversity, equity and inclusion, an area in which the entire university community must improve. Mike cares deeply about the members of his department, our college and the university, and he works tirelessly to improve them.”
