Jones Plans to Return to Full-time Teaching and Research

Professor Phillip L. Jones is leaving his position as senior associate dean of Duke’s Pratt School of Engineering Sept. 1 and will return to full-time teaching and research, Dean Kristina Johnson announced Friday.

“Phil is a terrific colleague,” Johnson said. “In his four years as senior associate dean for education, he oversaw the important curriculum review, guided the school through a successful ABET (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology) review this past year, established faculty awards in teaching and research and has been a wonderful ambassador for the school.”

Jones is associate professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science.
