Lorraine Branham has been named dean of Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications, effective July 1. She currently serves as director of the School of Journalism at the University of Texas at Austin.
Branham was selected from among 60 applicants during a seven-month nationwide search. She succeeds David M. Rubin, who has served as Newhouse dean since 1990.
?We applaud the great progress under Dean David Rubin,? Donald Newhouse, president of Advance Publications, said in a statement. ?We welcome Lorraine Branham with high hopes that she will provide the same determined leadership to steer the school in new directions in a fast-changing media world.?
