Stanley Tigerman, the unofficial dean of Chicago architecture, taught for many years at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

Wiel Arets, whose projects include the Maastricht Academy of Art and Architecture, Euroborg Stadium, the Hoge Heren, and the Utrecht University Library, was named dean of IIT's College of Architecture on Aug. 7.

Arets will travel back and forth from Europe, as he juggles his ongoing projects with his responsibilities at the school, where he hopes to forge a new unified vision that emphasizes research and debate.
