MCGRAW-HILL COLLEGE DIVISION REALIGNS PUBLISHERS, DISCIPLINES

 NEW YORK, June 15 /PRNewswire/ -- The College Division of McGraw-Hill (NYSE: MHP) has realigned its editorial operations to match more closely the structure of its publishing markets.
 The editorial operations will be aligned according to five major publishing groups: Humanities and Social Services; Engineering, Mathematics, and Science; Business and Economics; Foreign Languages; and Schaum.
 "This structure brings together all related products so that publishing programs can be strategically directed by product group," said Michael V. Needham, president of McGraw-Hill's College Publishing Division. "We have worked closely with our customers at major academic institutions to establish the most effective arrangement for developing the products they will need in the coming decade. We are committed to continually reviewing how our strengths can best be deployed in the education marketplace."
 In the new alignment, Denise Schanck is appointed publisher- Engineering, Mathematics and Science; and Roth Wilkofsky is appointed publisher-Humanities and Social Sciences.
 Ms. Schanck will be responsible for all publishing operations for the disciplines of Engineering, Mathematics and Science.
 Roth Wilkofsky will be responsible for the Humanities and Social Sciences program, including the disciplines of History, English, Art, Music, Psychology, Speech, Philosophy, Political Science, Education, Sociology and Anthropology. He will also be responsible for Overture Books, the company's new paperback imprint.
 Ms. Schanck joined McGraw-Hill in 1975 as book editor for Accounting and Data Processing in the Gregg Division and subsequently held editing and
production positions in the Book Company. She started in the


College Division in 1981 as a sales representative in Syracuse, N.Y. In 1985, she began work as New York State district sales manager. She was named Biology/Chemistry editor in 1988, and in 1989 she was appointed executive editor-Science. Ms. Schanck has served as publisher- Mathematics and Science since 1990. She holds a B.A. degree in English from the College of White Plains of Pace University.
 Mr. Wilkofsky became publisher-Humanities in 1990. He joined McGraw-Hill with the acquisition of Random House in 1988 as executive editor-Humanities. He started at Random House College and School Divisions in 1980 as an acquiring editor. Prior to that, he worked for Holt, Rinehart, and Winston as a sales representative and later as an acquiring editor. Mr. Wilkofsky holds a B.A. in English from Pennsylvania State University.
 Thalia Dorwick continues as publisher-Foreign Languages and ESL, responsible for all foreign language programs, including Destinos and ESL (English as a Second Language).
 Ms. Schanck, Mr. Wilkofsky and Ms. Dorwick will continue to report to Seibert Adams, vice president and editor-in-chief of the College Division.
 As part of this move, the company has created a new position, publisher-Business and Economics, which will be responsible for Business, Finance, Accounting, Economics, and Management Information Systems. This group will include Mitchell Publishing, which has operated as a stand alone business until now. The publisher-Business position also reports to Mr. Adams.
 John Carleo, publisher and general manager of Schaum, will report to Mr. Needham. He had been serving as both publisher-Engineering and Computer Science and general manager of Schaum. Mr. Carleo will now be able to focus exclusively on the growth and development of Schaum.
