Dear members of the Baruch College Community,
We recently concluded a search for a new Director of Sponsored Programs and Research to replace Dominic Esposito. Our current budget sequestration challenge is forcing every department and program to make some difficult choices regarding open positions. I have determined that we will not fill this position at this time.
In addition to salary, a new Director would need funds for professional development, some ability to “reset” the organization, and funds to initiate programs designed to enhance effectiveness. I cannot provide those OTPS resources now. Once the budgetary situation stabilizes, we will revisit this recruitment.
Zolicia Abotsi has agreed to continue her service as Interim Director. I thank her for her willingness to step up at this crucial time and for her dedication to supporting research at the College. We will reorganize the roles and responsibilities of all of the people in research administration to insure that we can support our faculty. Associate Dean Patricia Price will be physically present in the research office area one day per week.
I want to thank Keisha Peterson, who did an outstanding job as Chair of the Search Committee.
