Schreyer Honors College Dean Christian Brady To Step Down

Dean Christian Brady announced today that he will step down from his position in the Schreyer Honors College at the end of May, approaching his 10-year anniversary as dean. Brady became dean in August 2006 after leading the Jewish Studies program at Tulane University.

“For all 19 years of my academic career, I have carried responsibilities of administration. That has meant pursuing promotion and tenure, teaching, publishing — all while also being an administrator and without a sabbatical,” Brady told Penn State News. “Now is a good time for a break, a time to complete projects and consider what future opportunities might be ahead of me.”

Brady has rejuvenated the college’s resources during his tenure, leading Schreyer to win numerous awards and to be recognized consistently as a top Honors College nationwide. Scholarship and travel grant funds have also increased under Dean Brady, allowing Schreyer students to pursue engaged college experiences.

“Much has happened in my own life in the last few years,” Brady told Penn State News. “My wife and I have been extremely busy and as our daughter graduates from high school and begins her Penn State career it is time for me to consider my future. Stepping down at this time also will give me the opportunity to consider what the future might be for me as an administrator and/or academic.”
