At its recent annual meeting in San Francisco, the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) named seven new directors and elected a slate of new officers. Theda Skocpol, the Victor S. Thomas Professor of Government and Sociology, was named a director.

At Harvard, Skocpol has served as the dean of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences and as director of the Center for American Political Studies. She has served as president of the Social Science History Association and president of the American Political Science Association. Her research covers an unusually broad spectrum of topics including both comparative politics and American politics.

“AAC&U’s membership is very fortunate to be led by such a strong and committed board of directors,” said President Carol Geary Schneider. “The board’s leadership has contributed greatly to the growth of AAC&U’s membership and the strength of its programs and publications.”
