From: Dave Christy, Provost
Our 2013-2018 Strategic Plan included a College-wide plan to deepen engagement with the world beyond our campus. This resulted in new joint degree programs with international university partners, hiring faculty with global research interests and experiences, refreshed academic programs—most notably an expansion of the Marxe School into the area of International Affairs, and the appointment of Dr. Myung-Soo Lee, Professior of Marketing, to the role of Senior International Officer, with a working title of "Vice Provost."
Myung-Soo hosted countless delegations from international universities visiting Baruch, led CUNY’s involvement in the World Class World Cities (WC2) university consortium, engaged student organizations who provided cultural and multi-cultural programming, and participated in the International Cross Border Team which coordinates the efforts of the three schools, continuing education, study abroad, international student services, student affairs, and admissions. In addition to his faculty salary, he received 2/9th summer salary because these activities also occur in summer. After three years of service, Myung-Soo has decided to take fellowship leave in Bolzano, Italy to develop his research interests in marketing analytics.
I am seeking nominations of faculty who would like to consider serving in this capacity. I would ideally seek a 3-year commitment. Some international travel is normally required. If this kind of appointment is of interest to you, or if you would like to explore this further, please contact the Provost’s office (firstname.lastname@example.org) for an appointment. You are welcome to nominate colleagues if they agree to be considered. Nominees should be tenured; Distinguished lecturers or lecturers with CCE are also encouraged to inquire. I would like to make an appointment before June 1.
