ISR Director Search

On October 16, 2019 the formation of an advisory committee for the search for the next Director of the Institute for Social Research was announced. In January 2020 the Provost’s Office charged the committee members to present an unranked slate of recommended candidates at the end of their process.

The search advisory committee welcomes support and feedback. Please send comments, inquiries, and nominations to the consultants for the search, Jonathan Fortescue and Laurel Duggan with Park Square Executive Search, at MichiganISR@parksquare.com or contact the search committee chair, Dean Thomas A. Finholt, at isr-dsac-chair@umich.edu.

Update

April 2, 2020

Given current restrictions both at the university and nationally, the Provost’s Office has decided to pause the search for six months, which would bring the work of the committee to a re-start in early Fall. An excellent outcome of the search is best served by a pause at this time.

Please continue to send any comments, inquiries, and nominations to Park Square Executive Search, at MichiganISR@parksquare.com or contact the search committee chair, Dean Thomas A. Finholt, at isr-dsac-chair@umich.edu.

To contact the committee please email: ISR-director-sac@umich.edu
