Our Program Chairs
The professional degree and certificate programs within AAP are thoroughly grounded in the academic strengths of the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences (KSAS). One clear illustration of this bond is the guidance and leadership provided by our Program Chairs.
Appointed by the School of Arts and Sciences’ Dean, full-time KSAS faculty members are selected to provide academic and strategic oversight for a specific group of related programs, including the direction of their curricular development and faculty hiring.
AAP Council of Program Chairs
In addition to program-level input, Program Chairs also serve on the AAP Council of Program Chairs. The Associate Dean of AAP convenes a monthly Council meeting throughout the academic year to discuss academic quality and strategic leadership across the division. Among its significant responsibilities, the Council reviews all academic matters, including proposals for new programs in AAP.
