Hanover — Dartmouth College has named Kathryn Lively, a professor of sociology, as the college’s interim dean for one year beginning on July 1.

Lively will be responsible for undergraduate academic life, overseeing the division of student affairs and leading the house professors and the college’s six house communities, interim Provost David Kotz said in a news release announcing Lively’s appointment.

Lively is the inaugural house professor of the South House residential community and will remain in that position.

Her other responsibilities as interim dean will include serving as a member of the president’s and provost’s leadership teams, providing direction on inclusivity and diversity issues for students, and “promoting the integration of academic life into the full range of student experiences,” Kotz said.

Lively replaces professor Rebecca Biron, who is returning to teaching after three years as dean.
