As we come to the end of the academic year, I’d like to share an update on the recent activities and next steps for the Presidential Search Committee. For quick reference, here is a summary of the committee’s overarching timeline, which I describe in more detail below.

  • Each month until the search concludes: Share an update with the whole IC community.
