Georgia State University’s Andrew Young School of Policy Studies has a new dean -- Mary Beth Walker, chair of the school’s Department of Economics.
GSU President Mark Becker sent an e-mail to faculty earlier Wednesday announcing the selection of Walker, who has been at Georgia State since 1991, when she joined as an assistant professor of economics.
“Dr. Walker embodies the Andrew Young School mission to create and disseminate knowledge for policy makers and leaders in the public, nonprofit, and business worlds, and to educate students to become the next generation of policy scholars and practitioners,” Becker wrote in the e-mail. “I have no doubt that under her leadership, AYSPS will continue its rise as one of the top policy schools in the country with regional, national and global reach.”
