Jim McLeod Memorial to Honor Washington University Leader

Before his death in September, he served as dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, the largest undergraduate school at WUSTL. His accomplishments include expanding the study-abroad program and improving dormitory living, the university reported.

Legendary Washington University in St. Louis administrator Jim McLeod will be commemorated in Clayton beginning Sept. 15 when a new nature space dedicated to his memory is unveiled, the university reported this week. 

McLeod served as dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, the largest undergraduate school at WUSTL. He died last September.

Quoting from the Washington University newsroom article about McLeod's Way:

"Recognized as one of the university’s most effective leaders, McLeod spearheaded many successful undergraduate efforts, including developing a residential college approach to dormitory living; strengthening the undergraduate advising system; establishing and building the John B. Ervin Scholars Program; and helping initiate and shape the expanded study-abroad program."
