The University of Pennsylvania School of Design (Penn Design) announced yesterday that Frederick “Fritz” Steiner, Assoc. AIA, will be the next dean, effective July 1.

Steiner currently serves as dean of the School of Architecture at the University of Texas at Austin, where he also holds the Henry M. Rockwell Chair in Architecture. Over his 15-year tenure, he led the school of nearly 70 faculty and teaching staff and almost 700 students across a variety of fields, including architecture, community and regional planning, historic preservation, interior design, landscape architecture, sustainable design, and urban design. Under Steiner’s leadership, the UT Austin School of Architecture’s endowments nearly doubled, a new Center for Sustainable Development and new degree programs in landscape architecture and interior design were created, and the School’s buildings were expanded and modernized.
