From “The Poet and the Poem from the Library of Congress": During July, on iTunes, we honor Poets Laureate of the United States who keep language from the evils of persuasion …who rinse off words, making them fresh and new.
In July 2018, Donald Hall became the University of Rochester's Robert L. and Mary L. Sproull Dean of the Faculty of Arts, Sciences, and Engineering. Responsible for a unit that includes more than 350 faculty members, over 5000 undergraduate students, and over 1,300 graduate students, Hall's leadership will have a significant impact on the University and the College. He sits down to talk about his priorities and his vision for the future.
