Crimson Article on SEAS

This article from the Crimson on the state of Harvard's School of Engineering and Applied Sciences from a couple of weeks ago serves as a good primer for me on some of the many things I'll be dealing with as Area Dean.

Not mentioned in the Crimson article: how SEAS relates to other parts of Harvard. If I weren't sympathetic to engineering and technology, and I were in a non-engineering discipline, I might view the 68% (engineering) vs. 11% (overall) rise in applicants as a threat to the health of my particular area or the overall character and balance at Harvard. I guess I always think of the little guy or the other person. SEAS should work well with other disciplines. Maybe you are already doing this.
