Transition of Power: A guide to Penn’s six newest deans
The Class of 2019 are not the only new faces on campus — six new deans have been appointed over the last several months to serve throughout Penn’s 12 schools. Wharton Dean Geoffrey Garrett, Nursing Dean Antonia Villarruel and Social Policy & Practice Dean John L. Jackson Jr. began their terms during the summer of 2014.
Despite specializing in diverse fields, three of the new deans — Villarruel, Jackson and Grossman — are currently working together on youth initiatives to serve local Philadelphians. The project, for which details have yet to be announced, will integrate nursing, education and social policy and practice.
