NYU Presidential Search Update

Date:  September 4, 2014
To:  NYU Community
From:  William R. Berkley, NYU Presidential Search Committee Chair

 

As the work of the Presidential Search Committee gets underway, we would like to begin a process to keep you informed of our progress, and to solicit input from the NYU community at large. The selection of our next president is a critically important task for every stakeholder in the University’s future, and one that will benefit from the engagement of the wider University community, particularly as we work to develop a shared understanding of the challenges and opportunities facing our next president, as well as the experience that person would ideally have.  Most importantly, we are committed to creating a search process that generates confidence as well as draws upon the insights and wisdom of the many facets of our community. Our search committee consists of 14 members of the Board of Trustees; now six members of the faculty—with the addition of Gloria Coruzzi, the Carroll and Milton Petrie Professor of Biology; two deans; two students (one graduate and one undergraduate); and one Administrative Management Council member. The current list of committee members is below.

The first search committee meeting will be held on September 15. Shortly after, we will be scheduling times for members of the search committee to hear directly from the various constituencies, including faculty, students and staff, in New York and at NYU Abu Dhabi and NYU Shanghai. We will also be creating a website dedicated to the search process and have already set up a separate email address, nyupresident.search.committee@nyu.edu, where we are happy to receive any advice or input you want to offer, in addition to specific names you think we should pursue. Further details will be forthcoming shortly.

This is both an exciting and challenging time for our University, and the decision we make now together will set the course for the next generation of faculty, students, administrators, staff, and alumni. We thank you in advance for your participation in this process and look forward to hearing your contributions.
