Search committee for dean of the college formed

Princeton Provost Christopher Eisgruber has formed a committee to search for a successor to Nancy Malkiel, who has announced that she will step down as dean of the college at the end of this academic year.

Eisgruber, who will chair the search committee, said he hopes to have a new dean selected by the end of January so that there will be an opportunity for overlap.

Other members of the committee are: Manjul Bhargava, the R. Brandon Fradd, Class of 1983, Professor of Mathematics; Wallace Best, professor of religion and African American studies; Brandice Canes-Wrone, professor of politics and public affairs in the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs; Robert Kaster, the Kennedy Foundation Professor of Latin Language and Literature and professor of classics; Margaret Martonosi, professor of electrical engineering; Harvey Rosen, the John L. Weinberg Professor of Economics and Business Policy and master of Whitman College; Veronica Shi, a senior majoring in classics; and Michael Weinberg, a senior majoring in operations research and financial engineering and chair of the Undergraduate Student Government's Undergraduate Life Committee. Vice Provost Katherine Rohrer will serve as secretary to the committee.

Reporting to the provost, the dean of the college is the senior officer responsible for the University's undergraduate academic program.
