PLYMOUTH, N.H.-George Tuthill has been named Interim Associate Vice President for the College of Graduate Studies, according to PSU Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Dr. Julie Bernier.

George earned his Ph.D from M.I.T. and bachelor’s from Williams College. He spent 30 years as a professor of Physics at Montana State University.

In addition to an impressive record of scholarly work in the areas of statistical mechanics and the physics of phase transitions, George was instrumental in the creation of the NSF-funded National Teachers Enhancement Network (NTEN).
