Bruce Carmichael Named Deputy Dean at School of Engineering & Applied Science
Bruce F. Carmichael has been named deputy dean for academic administration in the School of Engineering & Applied Science, effective Nov. 17.
“We are extremely fortunate to have Bruce join us at this time of growth and strategic planning for our new school,” said School of Engineering Dean Kyle Vanderlick. “We will benefit greatly from Bruce’s wealth of institutional experience, wisdom and vision as we advance Engineering at Yale.”
Carmichael comes to the post in Yale Engineering from the Office of the Provost where he served as associate provost for science and technology for the last five years. In that capacity, he coordinated the many aspects of department management and oversaw support for advancement of the departments and units in the science and technology portfolio.
During nearly 20 years of service and leadership across the University, Carmichael also served as the associate dean for resources and management in the School of Nursing. Before that, he held many key posts in the School of Medicine including executive director for major projects and executive director for facilities development and operations.
“The new position is a unique opportunity to be part of the continued evolution of a school at Yale,” said Carmichael. Earlier this year the School of Engineering & Applied Science was re-established to strengthen engineering as part of Yale’s broader strategy of enhancing excellence in science and technology, and to emphasize the integral role of engineering in a complete liberal arts education.
