Office of the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs
I am writing to let you know that Dr. Nancy Aries has accepted the position of Director of the Honors Program at Baruch College, having served as Acting Director of the Program for the past year and a half.
A longtime professor at Baruch College’s School of Public Affairs, Nancy was the recipient of a prestigious American Council on Education Fellowship in 2008. As part of the Fellowship, she spent the 2008-09 academic year at Tufts University working under the mentorship of the college president and provost. During the 2009-10 academic year she served as CUNY’s Interim University Dean for Undergraduate Education.
Prof. Aries’s areas of scholarly interest are health policy and management. Her textbook Policy and Politics for Nurses and Other Healthcare Professionals, a collection of co-edited and co-authored essays was published in 2011 and is being adopted widely in nursing schools across the country. Her scholarly contributions have been published in the American Journal of Public Health, the Journal of Health Politics, Policy and Law, and Health Care Management Review. She holds an AB in Urban Studies from the University of Michigan and a PhD in Social Policy from Brandeis University.
Those of us who have been worked closely with Nancy on honors and other matters know first hand of her strong commitment to our students and to Baruch College. We are thrilled that she has accepted this position.
