Marxe Dean Search
National Search for the Marxe School’s Next Dean
Baruch College’s Austin W. Marxe School of Public and International Affairs has initiated a national search for the next Dean, with the expectation of the role being filled by July 1, 2022.
The mission of the Austin W. Marxe School of Public and International Affairs is to empower the next generation of public and nonprofit leaders, advance knowledge about public life and policy, and engage communities across the city, nation, and world to foster effective, inclusive institutions and societies. The Marxe Dean is responsible for leadership of the Austin W. Marxe School of Public and International Affairs, planning and development, and for managing its programs to further enhance its quality and reputation. The Marxe Dean will position the Marxe School as a leading regional and national public and international affairs/public policy school and strengthen and expand relationships with both external and internal constituencies (both domestic and global). The new dean will be a passionate advocate for public higher education and for the special history and mission of Baruch College and The City University of New York. The involvement of the Baruch community will be paramount in identifying distinguished candidates from diverse disciplines and backgrounds.
Provost Linda Essig has invited members from across the College community to serve on a diverse and critically important search committee, which is chaired by Myung-Soo Lee, former interim provost and director of the Weissman Center for International Business.
The national search will be guided by executive search firm Russell Reynolds Associates (RRA) which will assist in rendering a strong and diverse pool of candidates. RRA has conducted similar higher education executive searches. The lead consultants are Jett Pihakis and Joi Hayes.
