As the saying goes, “All good things come in threes.” This summer, Hamilton welcomed three new senior officers — Ngonidzashe Munemo, vice president for academic affairs and dean of faculty; Christopher Card, vice president and dean of students; and Sean Bennett, the inaugural vice president for diversity, equity, and inclusion.
Hamilton welcomes 48 new faculty members, including nine new tenure-track, in addition to visiting professors, lecturers, and teaching fellows for the 2022-23 academic year. The College is in the midst of a 10-year period, begun in 2015, during which nearly half of its faculty will reach average retirement age.
Hamilton salutes four distinguished members of the faculty who retired this year after a combined 152 years of service to the College. They are Cynthia Domack, professor of geosciences; Elaine Heekin, professor of dance and movement studies; Elizabeth Jensen, professor of economics; and David Thompson, professor of physical education and director of campus wellness.
