Melvin Cherno to head Hereford College

Melvin Cherno, the Joseph L. Vaughan Professor of Humanities in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, has been chosen as the new principal for Hereford Residential College. He will begin his term July 1, succeeding architecture professor Daniel Bluestone, who has served as the residential collegešs principal for the past five years.

Cherno, a member of the faculty since 1980, chaired the division of humanities in the School of Engineering from 1980 to 1990.

He and his wife Dolores (Dee) are no strangers to Hereford College; they lived there when Melvin Cherno served as the first principal of the college from 1991 to 1996. They will again live in Vaughan House, the principalšs residence, and say they are looking forward to working with a new generation of students.

Hereford Residential College houses approximately 500 students, of whom about 125 are first-year students. Hereford is the second residential college to be created at the University (Brown Residential College, housing approximately 300, was the first). There are tentative plans for a third residential college, an international one, which could open as early as the Fall of 2001, according to Associate Provost Shirley L. Menaker.

Hereford currently houses a large number of international students, who enjoy the community aspects of a residential college. The college offers many social events, short courses and opportunities for interaction with resident faculty and faculty fellows.
