Dean Linda Wells to Step Down
Over the course of a career that has spanned more than three decades, College of General Studies Dean Linda Wells has served in many roles at Boston University. She arrived in 1980 as a CGS junior faculty member, teaching courses in literature, film, and ethical philosophy. She was later promoted to chair of the CGS division of humanities and rhetoric and was a special faculty assistant to the provost for 10 years before becoming dean in 2000. Now, she is preparing for a new challenge.
Wells recently announced that she will step down as dean of CGS at the end of the spring semester. Following a sabbatical leave, she will return to the University to serve as an advisor on student career development and alumni relations.
Linda Wells will be greatly missed by the CGS community, as well as all those at the University who have had the pleasure of working with her over the years. Read the full story at BU Today.
