ALAN B. KRUEGER, ­professor of economics and public affairs, announced in October that he would leave his position as assistant Treasury secretary for economic policy to return to campus. Krueger, nominated to the post by ­President Barack Obama in March 2009, is expected to teach a spring-term course on the state of the economy.

STEVEN MACKEY, a professor of music and chairman of the music department, has written his first violin concerto, “Beautiful Passing,” which was performed by the Princeton Symphony Orchestra in October in Alexander Hall. The concerto’s title and the concerto itself were influenced by the death of Mackey’s mother in August 2008.
