Marxe Dean Search Progress Report
February 24, 2022
Dear Baruch Community:
I am very happy to provide a progress report on the search for the next dean of the Austin W. Marxe School of Public and International Affairs. The search committee, led by Dr. Myung-Soo Lee and assisted by Russell Reynolds Associates, reviewed a strong and diverse pool of candidates. They conducted Zoom interviews with semifinalists during the week of February 14. I also met briefly with this group of candidates and am truly impressed by their depth of experience, knowledge, and abilities.
Save the Dates!
The search committee recommended that we bring four finalist candidates to campus for a hybrid interview. The dates of these finalist visits are Wednesday, March 2; Monday, March 7; Thursday, March 10; and Friday, March 11. The open candidate forum will be conducted via Zoom to maximize participation. This forum will be 1:30–3 pm each of the days. To secure candidate confidentiality, candidate CVs and the meeting registration information will be released the day before each candidate’s visit. All participants will be invited to provide feedback through our Russell Reynolds consultants.
