Dear Alumni and Friends of Peabody,
I wanted to reach out to you today to share my decision not to seek another term as Institute Director. Our many accomplishments since I came to Peabody in 2006 were made possible by your support. I share your devotion to this special place and commitment to this extraordinary community. As I continue as Director during the search for my successor, I am confident that we will build on our accomplishments and see our recently launched campaign flower.
The announcement I made to Peabody faculty and staff members has been posted on our website, along with links to President Daniels' message and a story on the Hub, the Johns Hopkins news site.
Thank you for all you do for Peabody.
Jeffrey Sharkey, Director

Dear Peabody Community,
I am writing to let our community know that Dean Carolee Stewart has announced her intention to retire at the end of this academic year. I know that we as a community will be saddened at the thought of Carolee’s retirement, as well as deeply grateful for all she accomplished at Peabody.
I have truly enjoyed working with Carolee and seeing her achieve some remarkable changes in the Preparatory during her tenure. The growth of the academy programs as well as Tuned-In and Boy’s Dance are indications of how deeply the Preparatory is committed to access and to excellence.
Carolee’s career at Peabody has touched many individuals. Her first role as a music education faculty member in the Conservatory helped prepare many fine teachers for this area, some of whom now work with her in the Preparatory. When Carolee became Dean of the Preparatory, she influenced countless more students with the hiring and nurturing of quality faculty and the starting of key programs. Her work is highly respected by her faculty and staff colleagues, both within the Preparatory and throughout the Institute.
I will be putting together a search committee immediately to find a worthy successor to Carolee, the details of which will be announced shortly. We will also be planning a celebration of Carolee’s accomplishments that will take place later in the year. For now, I simply want to say “Thank you” on behalf of the entire Peabody Institute for all that Carolee has done, and for her to know that we wish her every joy in the next phase of her life and career.
