Professor of Geosciences Fred Soster begins his 32nd year of teaching at DePauw with a new title…Chair of the Department of Geosciences.  Fred takes over at the helm of the department for Jim Mills, who just completed two 3-year terms as chair.  Fred is not a rookie to his new role, however, as he has already served an extended 11-year stint as chair.  We're fortunate to have his experience and leadership, and are sure that the department remains in capable hands.  

Please join us in congratulating Fred on this new role and in thanking Jim for his years of excellent service and hard work!
