T.E. Schlesinger, a distinguished engineering researcher, teacher, and veteran leader of one of the top academic departments in his field, has been appointed dean of the Whiting School of Engineering at The Johns Hopkins University.

“Ed Schlesinger’s record as a researcher, educator, and administrator reflect a tireless commitment to excellence and a genuine passion for engineering and higher education,” said Ronald J. Daniels, president of Johns Hopkins.

“I have been struck by his thoughtfulness, drive, and infectious enthusiasm,” Daniels said. “His leadership, skills, and vision—to hone a distinctive identity for Johns Hopkins engineering and to inspire a systems approach to greater collaboration across our schools—will make him a superb dean of the Whiting School.”

Schlesinger said he is thrilled to be joining the university.
