Presidential search underway

Dear Cornell Community,

We are pleased to announce that the search for Cornell’s 14th president is underway. A Presidential Search Committee has been formed, and is finalizing steps to make the selection process as comprehensive and inclusive as possible.

Similar to past searches, there will be opportunities — on campus and online — for our community to provide input on the issues facing Cornell and its next president. Updates on the search will be released through the Cornell Chronicle the Presidential Search Committee website, and regular communications.

President Emeritus Hunter R. Rawlings III begins his service as Cornell’s interim president today, and will serve in this capacity until Cornell’s 14th president assumes office.


Robert S. Harrison ’76, Chairman of the Board of Trustees
Jan Rock Zubrow ’77, Chair, Presidential Search Committee
