Eric Schwartz became dean of the Hubert H.

Prior to his arrival in Minnesota, he was Assistant Secretary of State for Population, Refugees, and Migration. From 2006 through 2009, Schwartz directed the Connect U.S. Fund. From August 2005 through January 2007, he served as UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan's Deputy Special Envoy for Tsunami Recovery.
