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 2004, he was named an associate dean of the College of Letters and Science and served one year as interim dean before moving to New Hampshire. 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). NTEN offers online, graduate-level science professional development and was one of the first online professional development programs for K-12 teachers. George also has been successful in the area of grant funding, having received over $6 million dollars in grant funds in the last 10 years of his faculty appointment.

George has spent the last year and a half in the College of Graduate Studies as a Special Assistant in Academic Affairs working with the Pakistani Educational Leadership Institute and expanding our graduate site in Concord. He is committed to the College of Graduate Studies and has administrative experience that will be beneficial to the ongoing planning for academic affairs reorganization.

George will serve as Interim AVP for the College of Graduate Studies until a search is complete and an AVP has been named.
