Historian Mary Miller named senior director at the Institute for the Preservation of Cultural Heritage

Mary Miller, Sterling Professor of History of Art, has been named the senior director of the Institute for the Preservation of Cultural Heritage (IPCH) at Yale’s West Campus. The institute is now a recognized hub for new partnerships connecting cultural heritage, science, and conservation at Yale.

This past spring, IPCH was at the forefront as Yale hosted the United Nations Global Colloquium of University Presidents, bringing together presidents, vice chancellors, and experts in a broad coalition of support for research and education in cultural heritage preservation. In the wake of the UN Global Colloquium, the institute’s inaugural director, Stefan Simon, has determined to direct his attentions to global heritage, and will lead Yale’s initiatives in this area within IPCH.
