  • Celebrating Linda Abriola's Deanship at the School of Engineering

    May 5, 2015, 3pm EDT

    As Dean of the School of Engineering since 2003, Linda M. Abriola has been instrumental in the school’s success as it has grown considerably in size and stature. Linda worked to grow the school’s enrollment, triple the research volume, and attract a more diverse and impressive student body. As a result of her leadership, the School of Engineering is well positioned to continue its recent success into the future.

    Linda is continuing her relationship with Tufts, now as a University Professor. She will continue her research program in groundwater remediation as principal investigator of Tufts’ Integrated Multiphase Environmental Systems Laboratory. Linda will also return to teaching in her home department of civil and environmental engineering and as an adjunct professor of chemical and biological engineering. We look forward to having Linda continue to contribute to the great research and scholarship at the School of Engineering.

    Please join on May 5 as we celebrate Linda’s accomplishments as Dean.
