Dean named for Public Affairs school
Barton Wechsler has been named the inaugural dean of the Truman School of Public Affairs. Wechsler has served as a professor of public affairs and director of the Truman School since 2000. He will serve a two-year term as dean.
“My colleagues and I are deeply appreciative of the confidence the university has shown in the Truman School,” Wechsler said. “We are excited to continue our positive trajectory and become even more central to the campus, as well as relevant and valuable to the public policy community.”
Before joining MU, Wechsler was the founding dean of the Muskie School of Public Service at the University of Southern Maine.
