The search for the new dean of Cornell Tech has commenced with the formation of a search committee co-chaired by Provost Michael Kotlikoff and Deputy Provost John Siliciano. On the occasion Kotlikoff said: “This is an exciting time for Cornell Tech. Building on the tremendous accomplishments to date, the next dean will be in a position to move the campus forward in reputation, distinction and influence,” adding, “I’m grateful to the faculty for their valuable input on the search committee, and I’m looking forward to working with the members to expeditiously identify an outstanding leader for Cornell Tech.”

Members of the search committee can be found in Melanie Lefkowitz’s article in the Cornell Chronicle (March 15, 2019).

As reported earlier, Dan Huttenlocher, the Jack and Rilla Neafsey Dean and vice provost of Cornell Tech, is stepping down August 1st to become the inaugural dean of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s new Schwarzman College of Computing. Lefkowitz notes that “University administrators said they expect to name Huttenlocher’s replacement before he departs.”

Cornell faculty members who wish to nominate candidates or identify people who may provide useful information in the search are encouraged to use the confidential search mailbox via
