Enter two vice presidents, exit two deans.
In July, Glenn M. Bieler assumed Johns Hopkins’ newest senior administrative post, vice president for communications and public affairs. He will oversee the new Department of Communications and Public Affairs, which includes Johns Hopkins Magazine. Bieler comes to Johns Hopkins from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland where he was associate vice president for university marketing and communications.
In the same month, Clarence D. Armbrister became senior vice president and chief of staff. He succeeds Jerry Schnydman, executive assistant to President Ron Daniels. Armbrister previously served as chief of staff to Philadelphia mayor Michael A. Nutter.
At the conclusion of the academic year, Yash Gupta announced that he was stepping down as first dean of the Johns Hopkins Carey Business School. Executive vice dean Phillip Phan will serve as interim dean until a successor to Gupta can be found.
