The Members of the NYU Presidential Search Committee

Date:  Wednesday, July 2, 2014
To:     THE NYU COMMUNITY
From:  Martin Lipton, Chair, NYU Board of Trustees

 

Dear Fellow Members of the NYU Community,

I am pleased to share with you the names of the students, faculty, administrators, and trustees who will serve as the members of the NYU Presidential Search Committee, which will be chaired by William Berkley, Stern ’66, the Chair-designate of the Board of Trustees.

The Committee will begin its work in September and the Board hopes to name a new president prior to the end of 2015. Ellen Schall – the Martin Cherkasky Professor of Health Policy and Management at the Wagner School, the former dean of Wagner, and currently a Senior Presidential Fellow – will serve as coordinator of the search for the Board.

The Board has few responsibilities more important than the selection of a new president. I am fully confident that this group of women and men drawn from across the University community will – through their discernment, wisdom, good judgment, and dedication to NYU – successfully find us the right person to be our next president: a leader with a record of achievement who can build on what has been accomplished, sustain NYU’s drive for excellence, and further propel the University’s upward trajectory in the years to come. On behalf of the entire NYU community, I thank them for taking on this assignment.

As part of its work, the Search Committee will undertake active outreach to listen to the views of members of the University community. And, as many members of our community are among the most prominent people in their fields in higher learning, you may know of candidates you wish to nominate for consideration by the Search Committee; to submit the names of possible nominees, please contact the Committee at nyupresident.search.committee@nyu.edu.

Below, please find the roster of the Search Committee (a member of the recently established Full-Time Non-Tenure Track/Contract Faculty Council will be appointed in the near future).
