A few minutes ago, you should have gotten this email about the
transparent and student-driven search for a new Dean of Student Affairs from Deantini and Dean Boyce:
Dear Undergraduate Students:
We are writing to announce the launch of a national search for the new Dean of Student Affairs and to ask for your thoughts as we begin the search process. Student Affairs supports you, the undergraduate students of Columbia College and The Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science, through academic and co-curricular advising, student engagement, residential programs and other areas that enhance your experience outside of the classroom. This position plays an important role in your lives at Columbia, so we are committed to identifying the best candidate.
Columbia College and The Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science have retained an executive search firm, Storbeck/Pimentel & Associates, to assist us with the process. This firm, which specializes in higher education executive recruitment, will work closely with us—and with student leaders—to identify, evaluate and present candidates for the position.
We value your experiences and encourage you to offer your perspectives to us at CC-SEAS-SAdean@columbia.edu . We expect to complete the search and announce the appointment of a new Dean of Student Affairs by the end of the academic year.
