It feels fitting that my first note in Ask as interim dean of the College of Arts and Sciences would be on the topic of leadership. I’ve led teams throughout my career at Drexel, as director of the Applied Neuro-Technologies Lab and as head of the Department of Psychology, but the role of dean brings a new challenge and opportunity to expand on the approaches I’ve learned through the years.
Some of my earliest, fondest memories are of the afternoons I spent with my grandfather growing up.
On our walks through the woods or flying kites, I learned how to slow down and appreciate the world around me, how to find joy and beauty in quiet moments spent with people we love.
