Chancellor-elect Martin ushered in a new year with a new view of the Danforth Campus on Jan. 2, his first official day on the job.
The School of Law invited faculty from law and political science to get reacquainted with Chancellor-Elect Martin this fall. At a reception held Oct. 16 in the Crowder Courtyard of Anheuser-Busch Hall, Martin visited with old friends and colleagues, and got to know some new faces.
Students got to know Chancellor-Elect Martin at a reception on the Danforth Campus on Sept. 25. Some 400 students came out to the Athletic Complex to meet Martin, who was joined by Chancellor Mark Wrighton, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Lori White and the WashU Bear, among other special guests.
For only the second time in its 165-year history, Washington University in St. Louis will be led by one of its own. Andrew D. Martin will become the university’s 15th chancellor in June 2019, the board of trustees announced after a special meeting on July 14, 2018.
Andrew Martin did not always know he was destined for academia. Back in the summer of 1993 the man who just became Washington University’s next chancellor had just finished his junior year at the College of William and Mary and had no idea where his postgraduate life would take him.
