NEW ASSOCIATE DEAN NAMED

 "" PHOTO
"" ""

Lydia P. Howell, a professor of pathology and leader in the study of women's diseases at the anatomic and cellular level, was named associate dean for academic affairs at the UC Davis School of Medicine.

The first woman to serve at the associate dean level in academic affairs, Howell is responsible for overseeing a variety of personnel programs, policies and procedures for physicians, scientists and other academic staff. Her duties range from assessing promotion, merit-raise and appraisal processes to overseeing grievance-resolution programs and developing mentoring programs.

As a faculty assistant in academic affairs for the past three years, Howell took the lead in testing and implementing the mission-based reporting system, a new measurement tool to help department chairs assess departmental performance, evaluate faculty resources and mentor and reward individual faculty members.

"My goal is to continue working with faculty and staff to develop accurate and effective programs that enable us to achieve our goals," said Howell. "I want to help bring the best faculty to UC Davis and enable them to become successful in their careers."
