Committee seeks student input

As you probably know, Professor Gene M. Brown is stepping down as dean of science. We are serving as an advisory committee to assist the provost in the search for the next dean.

The members of the committee are currently meeting with members of the MIT community and soliciting opinions on the overall health and mission of the School of Science, the problems and opportunities that the next dean of science will face, the qualifications that the next dean should possess, and candidates both inside and outside MIT who should be considered for the position.

We are especially interested in identifying women or minority candidates for the position.

The members of the committee would appreciate receiving input on these questions from students, faculty, staff, alumni and other members of the MIT community during the coming weeks. Communications can be directed to any of us by phone, e-mail, or letter. Individuals wishing to meet with members of the committee are invited to contact the chairman.

We look forward to hearing from you.
