Quincy House tutor Ece G. Turnator will serve as Quincy’s acting resident dean this spring in place of Resident Dean Judith F. Chapman, who will take a semester-long sabbatical from her post.
Chapman announced her plans in an email to the Quincy community on Tuesday.
Chapman, a lecturer on Human Evolutionary Biology, said in an interview that she decided to take a sabbatical to focus on teaching. She will continue to live in Quincy during the spring semester and will be available to advise students, though Turnator will handle her administrative duties.
“I’ll still be part of the community and be very present,” Chapman said.
Chapman said she plans to resume her post as resident dean at the beginning of the 2013-2014 school year.
Turnator, a graduate student in the history department, has served previously as the acting resident dean of Dudley House.

Harvard Drops Four to Top CompetitionLearning hurts. That’s what the Harvard men’s water polo team found out this weekend when it traveled to California to play some of the best teams in the country at the Claremont Convergence Tournament. Taking on Chapman and Pomona-Pitzer on Friday and nationally-ranked Concordia and Cal Baptist on Saturday, the Crimson dropped all four contests. “California is the epicenter, the pinnacle of collegiate water polo,” said sophomore utility man Mike Katzer. “What we want to do is play tough competition. If we win, that’s great, but mainly [we want] to improve.”
