Additional search advisory group members named
With the Presidential Search Committee announced last Thursday, the Graduate Student Council (GSC) and the Undergraduate Association (UA) have formed a joint task force of undergraduate and graduate students (see below), six of which are part of the task force’s Executive Team. The group is responsible for gathering student input and advising the Presidential Search Committee as the MIT Corporation selects the next MIT President.
The GSC and the UA are holding six student-led forums over the next two weeks to “solicit feedback on the needs of MIT as well as the desirable qualities that a president should possess,” according to the GSC website. Students interested in attending the forums should RSVP at https://signup.mit.edu/mitpresidentsearch.
Over the upcoming weeks, online opportunities will also be provided for students to express opinions. MIT Corporation Chairman John S. Reed ’61 has said he hopes for the search to be completed by the summer.
