Chair Times Two

Professor Brian Reed, Chair of the Department of English, has been appointed as the inaugural Milliman Endowed Chair in the Humanities at the University of Washington in recognition of the "phenomenal work he has achieved in the field of the humanities." This endowment has been established through the extraordinary generosity of Glen S. and Alison Wyckoff Milliman. Its primary purpose is to enhance the university's ability to recruit and retain faculty in the humanities, and the intent is that the Milliman Chair be assigned on a rotating basis to academic departments in the Humanities Division of the College of Arts and Sciences. Professor Reed will hold the position for the next five years.
