Consultative Committee for the Selection of a Provost

President Amy Gutmann announced the formation of the Consultative Committee for the Selection of a Provost at Friday's  Trustee Executive Committee stated meeting.

The Committee will be chaired by Dr. Arthur H. Rubenstein, Dean of the School of Medicine and Executive Vice President for the University of Pennsylvania Health System.  

"There are few appointments more critical in the life of a great University than the selection of its chief academic officer.  Penn's next Provost must be an eminent, energetic, and judicious academic leader.  I am confident that the Committee that I  have assembled with the help of the Faculty Senate Executive Committee will do an excellent job, and I thank each of them for being willing to serve on this important committee," Dr. Gutmann said.

The members of the Committee, in addition to Dr. Rubenstein, are:

Faculty

  • Lawrence D. Brown, Statistics
  • Lance Donaldson-Evans, Romance Languages
  • Roselyn Eisenberg, Microbiology
  • Oscar H. Gandy, Communication
  • Robert C. Hornik, Communication
  • Howard Lesnick, Law
  • Rebecca A. Maynard, Education
  • Mary D. Naylor, Nursing
  • Harvey Rubin, Infectious Diseases
  • Greg Urban, Anthropology
  • John Vohs, Biomolecular Engineering

Students

  • Jason Levine, Undergraduate in the College, Chair of the Undergraduate Assembly
  • Samantha R. Springer, Undergraduate in the College, Chair of the Student Committee on Undergraduate Education
  • Ann Tiao, Ph.D. Candidate in Education, President of the Graduate Student Associations Council
  • Simi R. Wilhelm, Ph.D. Student in Education, Chair of the Graduate and Professional Student Assembly

The search will be supported by Dr. Stephen P. Steinberg, of the President's office, and the firm of Isaacson, Miller, which knows Penn well, as they also supported last year's presidential  search.
