You learn from us. We learn from you.

Academic Affairs oversees the curriculum and all academic matters, led by the Dean of the College.

Barbara Stone

Barbara has a lot of paperwork for which she’s responsible, but her favorite part of her job as Dean is working with students. As Professor of German and Humanities, Barbara also teaches core courses,electives, and tutorials including Women in Fiction and German for Reading.

Ask her how to pronounce the (arguably) longest German word: Donaudampfschiffahrtsgesellschaftskapitän.
