The mission of PDA Human Affairs Committee is to serve and support all MIT postdocs in terms of health, wellness, diversity and inclusion. As the Committee Chair, I am inviting all MIT postdocs to step out of your lab and mingle with your peers with good food for an hour this Wednesday, May 8, 4 pm. A special guest, Prof. Nina Zipser, will be there too!
About the special guest:
Prof. Nina Zipser is now the Dean for Faculty Affairs and Planning at Harvard University. She has led the Office for Faculty Affairs (OFA) since May 2008. In this role, she works closely with the FAS deans to develop and execute long-range plans and policies affecting the faculty. OFA coordinates academic planning; oversees all policy and procedural aspects of faculty hiring, promotions, leaves, and retirements; collects and analyzes data pertaining to the faculty; and advises individual faculty and administrators. After receiving a Ph.D. in mathematics from Harvard, Zipser joined the faculty at M.I.T., where she taught and conducted research on differential geometry. She then joined the Boston Consulting Group, and in 2003 she became Harvard’s first Director of the Office of Institutional Research (OIR). As founding Director for five years, Zipser defined the mission of OIR, working with all of Harvard’s Schools to help them undergird policy decisions with quantitative and qualitative analyses. Zipser brings this approach to her current role. Interested in learning more about her unique experiences? Come and mingle with her at the social hour!
Thank you very much!
