Karen Kinoshita is retiring from the University on October 6, 2020. For the many faculty, students, staff, and visitors who have passed through the IAS, Karen has been the first person they encountered at the Institute. The IAS’s reputation for being a welcoming and supportive place is in no small way thanks to Karen, who joined the staff in December 2005, three months after the IAS first opened its doors.
