It is with mixed emotions that we share with you the news that Jianmin Qu, dean of the School of Engineering, will join Stevens Institute of Technology in September as their new provost and vice president for academic affairs.
Jianmin has served the Tufts community with distinction for the past six years as the dean of the School of Engineering and has made an everlasting impact on the Tufts community. Under his leadership, the school has seen rapid growth in many areas, including undergraduate and graduate enrollment, undergraduate and graduate degree applications, graduate and doctoral programs, online degrees, and certificate programs. Annual research expenditure also grew by 65 percent during Jianmin’s tenure as dean.
You can read more about Jianmin’s service as dean in this Tufts Now story. An interim dean for the School of Engineering will be announced in a few weeks and Provost Aubry will launch a national search for a permanent successor shortly thereafter.
Please join us in thanking Jianmin for his outstanding leadership and commitment to Tufts and wishing him the very best in his new role.
