All things Morse (and Walrus)…: 

Head of College Panter-Brick reappointed to a new five-year term!

It gives us great pleasure to announce the reappointment of Professor Catherine Panter-Brick to a new five-year term as Head of Morse College beginning on June 30. Please see the following message posted to the Yale News site: 

“Panter-Brick, professor of anthropology, health and global affairs, is ‘a community builder,’ who students describe as ‘caring, supportive, and profoundly sincere in her interactions with them,’ said [Yale President Peter] Salovey.

A review committee of Morse community members, chaired by Scott Miller, the Irénée du Pont Professor of Chemistry, ‘wholeheartedly recommended’ Panter-Brick’s reappointment, said Salovey. The committee also included Onyx Brunner ’20, Eugenio Garza ’23, Paula Kavathas, Sonia Lingos-Utley ’21, and Amy Ren ’22.

In its report, the committee ‘lauded Professor Panter-Brick, Associate Head of College Mark Eggerman, and their entire family for being consistently thoughtful and present in Morse College life,’ said Salovey. ‘Fellows were deeply appreciative of Professor Panter-Brick’s friendliness and camaraderie, and they praised the intellectual interactions at formal and informal gatherings at Morse. Staff members admired her drive for excellence and her ability to balance seriousness and compassion when leading the residential college,’ said Salovey.

Panter-Brick holds faculty appointments in the Department of Anthropology, the Jackson Institute for Global Affairs, and the School of Public Health. Her research at Yale focuses on human health and resilience in the face of adversity. As an anthropologist, she works on mental health, violence, and well-being among populations faced with poverty, famine, war, and social marginalization.”
