Dreyfus Foundation Head Seeks New Challenges

obert L. Lichter, Executive Director of the New York City-based Camille & Henry Dreyfus Foundation since 1989, has decided to leave that position. During Lichter's 13-year tenure, the foundation's grant programs--all in the chemical sciences--grew from just under $2 million in four programs to nearly $6 million in 10 programs. The foundation's areas of engagement broadened to embrace not only its traditional encouragement of young college and university faculty, but also educational innovation, human resource development, and public understanding and appreciation of chemistry.

"This seemed like the right time to move on," Lichter tells C&EN. "It has been very rewarding to see the foundation become a major force in the chemical community. Now, I look forward to exploring new possibilities in Atlanta, where my wife has been director of publishing strategy at the American Cancer Society since last fall."

Lichter will leave at the end of the summer. Plans for his succession have not yet been announced.
