Hubert E. Jones, 1974
Hubert "Hubie" Eugene Jones joined the DUSP faculty as Associate Professor and Head of the Community Fellows Program in 1974. By then, however, the cost in increases and funding cuts began to affect DUSP's projects and research efforts. The department encouraged faculty to devote more time to sponsored research and initiated new contacts with the private sector. In 1977, three years after joining DUSP, Jones left MIT to become the first black dean of Boston University's School of Social Work, a post he held until 1993.
