"I am really excited about this opportunity and thankful that I am able to continue my career at Tufts," says Jillian Dubman.

A Promotion at Ballou

Jillian Dubman is the new secretary of the faculty at AS&E

A familiar face will be moving from the third floor of Ballou to the first.

Jillian Dubman, executive assistant to the dean of Arts and Sciences, was formally elected to the position of secretary of the faculty for the School of Arts and Sciences and the School of Engineering. She begins her new position July 1, succeeding Catherine Doheney, who retired.

As the administrative officer for the AS&E faculty, Dubman will be a liaison between the faculty and the administration; she will coordinate materials between the faculty and the university's Board of Trustees and assist the various faculty committees in their work, particularly the Tenure and Promotion Committee and the Executive Committee.

"I am really excited about this opportunity and thankful that I am able to continue my career at Tufts," she says. "This university is truly a special place."

Dubman has been in the A&S dean's office since 2004. Her responsibilities have included faculty development programs, ad hoc committees and communications initiatives. She was appointed in 2007 by Dean Robert Sternberg to serve as editor of The A&S News Beat, the school's electronic newsletter. She coordinated the Dean's Faculty Forum, department chairs' and program directors' meetings, and the Board of Overseers meetings. Dubman received the inaugural School of Arts and Sciences Stewardship Award in 2007.

Prior to joining Tufts, Dubman was a project manager at Brigham and Women's Hospital and coordinated training and education grants for a Harvard University faculty member. Dubman relocated to the Boston area in January 2004 from San Francisco, where she was a program coordinator at Stanford University. Dubman received her master's degree in international peace and conflict resolution from American University in 2001 and her bachelor's in international affairs from George Washington University in 1999.
