David W. Andrews, a distinguished scholar who has dedicated his career to improving academic and behavioral outcomes for at-risk children and youth, became dean of the Johns Hopkins University School of Education on Sept. 1.
Andrews was the founding dean of The Ohio State University's College of Education and Human Ecology. Immediately before coming to Johns Hopkins, he was a professor in the Department of Human Development and Family Science at Ohio State, where he has been instrumental in an innovative partnership with the public schools in Columbus, Ohio, to establish a model world-class early childhood laboratory in a low-income area of the city.
Andrews has spent his enhancing opportunities for children and youth. As a researcher and program developer, he has created and evaluated international, national, state and local initiatives designed to improve schools and enhance the well-being of children and youth, particularly those in urban areas with vulnerable populations. As an administrator in higher education, he has led large diverse academic communities in establishing multidisciplinary approaches to meeting the educational and developmental needs of children from birth through young adulthood.
Andrews became a member of the Ohio State faculty in 1995 and rose to dean of the College of Human Ecology in 1998. In 2006, he led the effort to merge two large and highly successful colleges at Ohio State, resulting in the creation of the College of Education and Human Ecology. He was subsequently appointed dean of the merged school.
Prior to joining Ohio State, Andrews held positions at Oregon State University and the University of Oregon, where he served as associate professor in the Department of Human Development and Family Studies and adjunct associate professor in the Department of Psychology.
Andrews earned his bachelor's degree in psychology from Auburn University. He holds a master's degree from Kansas State University and a doctorate from Florida State University, both in child development.[Updated September 2010]
