Hopkins Medicine Appoints Assistant Dean for Admissions, Financial Aid
Paul T. White, J.D., has been appointed Assistant Dean for Admissions and Financial Aid at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. This new position combines oversight of admissions a post White already held with the financial needs of students, two vital steps in the process leading to matriculation.
"This appointment reflects Paul's broad and comprehensive vision as an administrator, and allows us to better insure that the needs of the School and the student are met," said Edward D. Miller, M.D., dean and CEO of Johns Hopkins Medicine.
White came to Hopkins in 1994 as Director of Undergraduate Admissions and was promoted to Assistant Dean for Admissions at the School of Medicine in 2000. Before coming to Hopkins, he served in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions at Yale University, where he was promoted to Assistant Director of Admissions. He later served as Associate Dean of Admissions at Hamilton College in New York and subsequently as Senior Associate Dean of Admissions at Colgate University.
Born and raised in New Kensington, PA, White received his Bachelor's Degree in American Studies from Yale University and his law degree from Georgetown University. Among his professional affiliations are the JHU Black Faculty and Staff Association, which he co-founded and served as President and as chair of its Professional Development Committee. He currently serves as a member of the National Merit Corporation Scholarship Selection Committee, the Educational Testing Services Scholarship Recognition Committee and as chairman of the board of Hightower Scholars, Inc.
