Angel Jordan, Emeritus Keithley University Professor of ECE and Robotics, will be acting director of the Software Engineering Institute (SEI), as of July 21. As noted in the The Carnegie Mellon 8 1/2 X 11 News:
Jordan, a founding father of the SEI in 1985 and former Carnegie Mellon provost, received the SEI's Director's Office Award for Excellence this past spring. The SEI Auditorium was renamed the Jordan Auditorium as a tribute to his contributions.
"More than any other person Angel Jordan was responsible for the creation of the SEI," said Provost Mark Kamlet, who is chairman of the search committee for a new director. "Angel has been highly involved in its activities and is very familiar with all of its aspects. The university is very grateful for his willingness to become acting director as we search for Steve Cross' successor."
He will replace Steve Cross, who has announced his resignation to become vice president at Georgia Institute of Technology and director of the Georgia Tech Research Institute.
The SEI is internationally recognized as the leading authority in software engineering.
