Glaser to continue as Acting Dean of Harris SchoolCharles Glaser, Assistant Professor in the Irving B. Harris Graduate School of Public Policy Studies, will continue to serve as Acting Dean of the Harris School for another year while the search for a permanent Dean continues, President Sonnenschein announced. Glaser has been Acting Dean since the autumn quarter.
"Charlie has done an excellent job leading the Harris School during this transitional period, and I look forward to working with him and drawing upon his counsel in the coming year," Sonnenschein said. "Both Provost Stone and I have found him to be an extremely effective and convincing advocate for the Harris School within the broader University community."
Glaser is an expert on international relations, with a special interest in international security and defense policy. He has published extensively on U.S. nuclear weapons policy, including strategy, force posture and arms control. Among his works is the book Analyzing Strategic Nuclear Policy (1990).
Before joining the Chicago faculty in 1991, he was a research associate at MIT, an assistant professor in political science at Michigan, a Peace Fellow at the United States Institute of Peace and a strategic analyst for the Joint Chiefs of Staff. He received his B.S. in 1977 from MIT and his M.A. in 1980 and his Ph.D. in 1983 from Harvard.
