On August 1st, after nearly 10 years of service as Co-Director for the MBSB program, Gordon Rule made the decision to step down as Co-Director of the MBSB program so that he can focus on his research, teaching, and other scholarly interests. We are deeply appreciative of Gordon’s leadership and steady hand in guiding the program over many years. 

Effectively immediately, Maria Kurnikova will take Gordon’s place as the Co-Director of the MBSB program. Maria has been involved in committee work and teaching in the program for many years. The MBSB steering committee thanks Maria for stepping into this role and we are excited to work with her to sustain and further strengthen the MBSB program.
