Jack Richman has been appointed associate dean of international programs for the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Social Work. The professor and former dean of the school began this position Nov. 1, 2016.
“We have a number of global activities underway — the expectation is that we expand our global reach,” Dean Gary Bowen said. “Jack Richman is exactly the right person to lead this expansion.”
Bowen added that Richman is traveling this month with faculty members Gina Chowa and Rain Masa to South Africa, one of eight countries where the School of Social Work has introduced programs and research activities in recent years. They are working toward the launch of a new global research center, Global Social Development Innovations.
Richman joined the school’s faculty in 1983 and served as dean for 13 years. He is a graduate of Florida State University and of the State University of New York at Albany.
