Last Sunday, while I was doing a bit of cooking, I had good (and informative) company through the airwaves from Dean Stavridis, who was interviewed on NPR about the crisis in Ukraine. In any week, the dean can be found in a number of different forums, starting with his own blog and Twitter feed. He also has a new book coming out this fall. But the real reason for this short post is to bring your attention to a column he wrote for Time.com about his transition to an academic life. Among his other observations: “I went from the crisp efficiency of the U.S. military to what feels like, in comparison, the free-wheeling academic carnival that is higher education.” One year into his tenure as dean, Dean Stavridis seems to be thoroughly enjoying the “challenge of leading and mentoring young people, helping guide the trajectory of their lives in a positive direction,” despite the “startling shift” in his environment.
Dean Stavridis joined us here at Fletcher just last July, and we’ve all been enjoying getting to know him. Lucky for us, our opportunities to learn what he thinks extend beyond meetings or occasional interactions in the Hall of Flags. Here are some sources of info on the Dean:
• An article in Tufts Magazine that was also featured on the Tufts Now site.
• His own blog, “To Know the World,” which also includes videos created in October and September.
• Op-Ed pieces in publications, such as The Washington Post, Foreign Affairs, Foreign Policy, The New York Times, and The Boston Globe.
I’ve just returned from about a week out of the office, so just a quick post today. First, my thanks to Christine, who kept the blog humming last week with her staff introductions. You’ll be hearing more from Christine in September, as we’ll be replacing the Dear Ariel feature with a new Q&A column, “Consult Christine.” It will be fun for me to collaborate with Christine on the column, though we all miss the now-graduated Ariel.
Also new is a blog from Fletcher Dean James Stavridis. While faculty, staff, students, and alumni are getting to know Dean Stavridis, his writing will also provide us with a window into his thoughts about the School. Check out his first blog post and video. Dean Stavridis is well connected through social media, and invites you to engage with him through your preferred platform including blog comments, Twitter or Facebook.
