In an effort to pursue greater staff diversity, Harvard University announced that Harvard Law School professor Ronald S. Sullivan Jr. and his wife, Harvard Law lecturer Stephanie Robinson, have been chosen as the new House Masters of Winthrop House, a first for any African-American. House Master is a prestigious title given to those who have earned distinction in a range of academic and professional endeavors. Sullivan is a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Morehouse College and current director of the Harvard Criminal Justice Institute while Robinson is a magna cum laude graduate of the University of Maryland. She is CEO of The Jamestown Project, an action-oriented think tank based at Harvard Law comprised primarily of minorities and women.—WLW
