Six New Scholars Join the College Faculty


After hiring 10 new faculty members last year, the College of Human Ecology added six scholars for the 2012-2013 academic year--a talented and diverse group with expertise ranging from sustainable design to demography to nutrition and disease.

The college's aggressive pace for hiring new faculty is part of Cornell's overall strategy to replace the estimated one-third of the university's faculty who are expected to retire over the next decade. President David Skorton has made "faculty renewal" one of the university's four key strategic concerns. Here are details on the college's newest faculty:
