Presidential Search Ends
On March 2, 2012, in a special session, the Corporation of Brown University voted on Christina Paxson as the 19th President for Brown University. Paxson has served since July 2009 as the dean of Princeton’s Woodrow Wilson School, where she initiated a review of both the Master in Public Affairs curriculum and the undergraduate major. A Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Swarthmore College, Paxson earned her Ph.D. from Columbia University. Paxson’s research and teaching focus on economic status and health outcomes over the lifespan in both developed and developing countries.
