Jan Jacobs, a developmental psychologist who received her Ph.D. at the University of Michigan in 1987 and later served on the faculty at the University of Nebraska and Penn State, died on Friday (click here for obituary). At the time of her death, she was vice president and dean for undergraduate education at Penn State. Some of you may also remember Jan's husband Wayne Osgood from his time in the 1980s as a scientist at the UM's Institute for Social Research. Condolences to Jan's family and friends.
