The search for a DISC Director has begun. To help the University make this ground-breaking hire, we have retained the services of the search firm Witt/Kieffer to assist in the search and vetting process.
Manny Berger, Joyce DeLeo and their team visited campus the week of July 10th. During that time, they interviewed members of our community regarding the scope of work with the goal of creating a thorough job description and with other background information. We are now ready to form the Search Committee with Vice Provost for Research Simin Nikbin Meydani as chair. Members of the Search Committee will be announced at a later date.
With this search, our goal is not only to find the best candidates for the position but also to develop a culture of interdisciplinary collaboration that will serve as the bedrock for this important university-wide initiative. We anticipate the hiring of our DISC Director by approximately January 2018.
