MINERVA SCHOOLS continues to build its academic team with the addition of two educators. The four-year, for-profit undergraduate university named a new dean of its College of Computational Sciences for the Minerva Schools at KGI and also appointed its first director of research at the Minerva Institute for Research and Scholarship, a nonprofit that offers scholarship and loan programs and facilitates grant-funded research. “As we grow, we are thrilled to continue to attract superb scholars and administrators who are experts in higher education,” Founding Dean Stephen Kosslyn said in a press release. Minerva students follow an interactive curriculum and study in seven global cities. The university’s first class of 28 students completed its freshman year in April 2015.
