Melanie Stein, the outgoing dean of academic affairs and professor of mathematics, was honored at a separate reception on May 16, when Berger-Sweeney and members of the college community expressed their gratitude for the work Stein has done at Trinity over the past 24 years. Stein joined the faculty in 1995 and has served for seven years as an academic dean. She is a former chair of the Mathematics Department and a former interim dean of the faculty. Berger-Sweeney said of Stein in a letter to the Trinity community, “It is impossible to quantify her impact on Trinity, but it is unquestionably profound and positive. She has made our community stronger and leaves a legacy of leadership through collaboration, respect, fairness, and integrity.” Stein begins a new role as dean of the School of Humanities and Sciences at Ithaca College on July 1.
