VPAA and Dean of Faculty Suzanne Keen - November 18, 2021

Earlier today, Scripps College announced that Suzanne Keen, vice president for academic affairs (VPAA) and dean of faculty, has been named its 10th president. This appointment, which is effective July 1, 2022, is a well-deserved honor for Suzanne and a great loss for Hamilton. Scripps saw in Suzanne what we have witnessed since July 2018 at Hamilton: a highly effective scholar, teacher, and administrator with great integrity, character, and vision who works tirelessly and creatively to advance academic priorities and the primacy of the liberal arts. She advocates strongly for the faculty, always mindful of what’s best for our students.
