The College of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of Colorado at Boulder has named Mary Steiner to the position of assistant dean for students.
Steiner, who will join the college Aug. 15, has more than 10 years of experience working in engineering libraries at the University of Pennsylvania and Princeton University. Since 2004, she has led a project to create an online archive highlighting the scholarship of faculty and students at the University of Pennsylvania.
She holds a bachelor's degree in aerospace engineering from the University of Michigan and a master's degree in information and library studies from Rutgers University.
"We are delighted to have been able to attract someone with Mary's qualifications to this position," said John Bennett, associate dean of engineering for education at CU-Boulder. "She has made innovative and substantial contributions at two other outstanding engineering schools; we all look forward to working with her here."
Steiner's responsibilities as assistant dean for students include coordinating the admissions process for undergraduate engineering students, overseeing the awarding of scholarships, managing student records, monitoring students' progress and advising students on college rules and policies.
She will replace Jim Sherman, who will retire from the university Sept. 1 after 35 years of service.
