Although she will depart Massachusetts Hall next June 30, President Drew Faust remains very much the University’s leader, and so she has announced searches for new deans of the Graduate School of Education (filling the vacancy that will occur when James E. Ryan leaves to become president of the University of Virginia) and the Radcliffe Institute (where Lizabeth Cohen is stepping down at the end of the academic year).

In a note to the education school community, Faust announced the membership of a multi-school advisory committee for the search, reporting to her and Provost Alan Garber:

  • Christopher Avery, Larsen professor of public policy and management
  • Tomiko Brown-Nagin, Paul professor of constitutional law and professor of history

  • Nancy Hill, Bigelow professor of education
  • Andrew Ho, professor of education
  • Deborah Jewell-Sherman, Anrig professor of practice in educational leadership

  • Nonie Lesaux, Thompson professor of education and society
  • Charles Nelson, professor of pediatrics, professor of psychology, professor of education, and professor in the department of social and behavioral sciences
  • Mandy Savitz-Romer, senior lecturer on education 
  • Mario Small, Grafstein Family professor of sociology
  • Michael Tushman, Lawrence MBA Class of 1942 professor of business administration (HBS) 

Comments on the search may be e-mailed in confidence to the president at gsesearch@harvard.edu; by letter to Massachusetts Hall, Cambridge, MA 02138; or directed to Leah Rosovsky, vice president for strategy and programs, who is staffing the search.

In a note to the Radcliffe community, Faust and Garber announced the following members of the advisory committee for that search:
