The University of Virginia announced today that Christa D. Acampora has been appointed the dean of the College and Graduate School of Arts & Sciences, effective Sept. 1.
“From the search committee’s first introduction to Dr. Acampora, we knew that she would be a strong and relentless advocate for the College,” said Sarah Kucenas, search committee co-chair and professor of biology, cell biology and neuroscience. “Her experience and dedication to enhancing both undergraduate and graduate education is something that resonates with our community and will allow us to continue the important work we have already begun reimagining the new College Curriculum – as well charting the next chapter for the Graduate School.
