Columbia College First Black Dean
These again are things that since they are not put in the front page of most newspapers we have to "find" these stories and share. Yesterday, Michelle Moody-Adams was named the first Dean of Columbia College. Dr. Moody-Adams, 52, a philosopher, has also run Cornell’s program on ethics and public life. Her 1997 book, “Fieldwork in Familiar Places: Morality, Culture and Philosophy,” was roundly praised in the field.
Dr. Moody-Adams, who received her master’s and doctoral degrees in philosophy from Harvard University, succeeds Austin E. Quigley, who will retire in June after serving as dean for 14 years.
Another great achievement in Black History.
