Welcome the new Associate Dean of Equity and Inclusive Excellence Professor Ann Sinsheimer

Effective July 1, 2023, Professor Ann Sinsheimer was appointed as Associate Dean of Equity and Inclusive Excellence.  For the past five years, Ann has been leading the Resilience & Engagement Project at Pitt Law https://www.law.pitt.edu/about/fostering-resilience-and-engagement-law-students. The project focuses on promoting student resilience and cultivating a growth mindset.  Ann and her collaborators (Dr. Omid Fotuhi, Dr. Ming-Te Wang, Ciara Willet) have received Momentum Funding (Teaming Grant) from Pitt to advance their work. Given the work, the care and concern she has shown for all of our students, and her deep involvement in advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion more broadly, we are confident that she will do a spectacular job filling Professor Tomar Pierson-Brown’s gargantuan shoes.  

Congratulations Ann! Our Pitt Law community is looking forward to working with you!
