ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — A University of Michigan provost who is leaving to lead Dartmouth College is among two from the Ann Arbor school to be named fellows of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.

Outgoing Provost Phil Hanlon and education and public policy professor David Cohen are among 198 new members of the society that recognizes individuals who have made significant contributions in their fields.

Hanlon is expected to start work in July at Dartmouth. Cohen is a visiting professor at Harvard University.

This year's new members also include actors Robert De Niro and Sally Field, musicians Herbie Hancock and Bruce Springsteen, and astronaut and former U.S. Sen. John Glenn.

The new class of fellows will be inducted in October at the Academy's headquarters in Cambridge, Mass.
