We are pleased to announce the appointment of a Presidential Search Advisory Committee that will play an active role in the search process for the next president of the University of Michigan. The following faculty members will join the eight members of the Board of Regents to constitute this committee:
- Alec Gallimore (Arthur F. Thurnau Professor; Professor of Aerospace Engineering and Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Education, College of Engineering),
- David Ginsburg (James V. Neel Distinguished University Professor of Internal Medicine and Human Genetics and Warner-Lambert/Parke-Davis Professor of Medicine, Medical School; Research Professor, Life Sciences Institute; Howard Hughes Medical Institute Investigator),
- Timothy R.B. Johnson (Arthur F. Thurnau Professor; Bates Professor of the Diseases of Women and Children and Chair of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Medical School; Professor of Women’s Studies, College of Literature, Science and the Arts; Research Professor, Center for Human Growth and Development),
- Jeffrey MacKie-Mason (Dean, Arthur W. Burks Collegiate Professor of Information and Computer Science, School of Information; Professor of Economics, College of Literature, Science and the Arts; Professor of Public Policy, Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy),
- Tiya Miles (Elsa Barkley Brown Collegiate Professor of African American Women's History, Chair, Department of Afroamerican and African Studies, Professor of Afroamerican and African Studies, Professor of American Culture, Professor Native American Studies, Professor of History and Professor of Women’s Studies, College of Literature, Science, and the Arts),
- Rebecca Scott (Arthur F. Thurnau Professor; Charles Gibson Distinguished University Professor of History, College of Literature, Science and the Arts; Professor of Law, Law School), and
- Lynn Perry Wooten (Clinical Associate Professor of Strategy and Management and Organizations and Associate Dean for Undergraduate Programs, Stephen M. Ross School of Business).
The Presidential Search Advisory Committee will conduct a broad, vigorous search to develop and recommend a pool of candidates to be considered by the Board of Regents sitting as the Presidential Search Committee. From this pool, the regents will select the University’s 14th president. Mary Sue Coleman announced she will retire as president when her contract ends on July 31, 2014.
As part of the search process, the Advisory Committee will reach out to the campus community to solicit feedback on issues facing the University and qualities to seek in a new president. We will hold a series of public meetings to discuss those matters in September and October. We also look forward to receiving nominations from members of the University community.
The regents have retained the services of Dr. Ilene H. Nagel and Alison Ranney, of Russell Reynolds Associates, to assist them with the search. Russell Reynolds Associates is one of the leading executive recruiting firms in the world, with offices in 26 countries. Their higher education practice focuses on the recruitment of presidents, provosts and deans, primarily at Association of American Universities research universities and peer institutions. Their clients include, but are not limited to, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Stanford University, Johns Hopkins University, Duke University, University of Southern California, Northwestern University, the University of Pennsylvania, the University of Texas at Austin, the University of Minnesota, the University of Virginia, New York University, Georgetown University, and University of California-San Diego, among others.
Nominations may be submitted directly to UMich.President@russellreynolds.com.
We have created this presidential search website to keep the campus community apprised of matters related to the search and for members of the community to reach out to us to discuss the search.
