The Consultative Committee will be chaired by SEAS Dean Eduardo Glandt and supported by Dr. Stephen Steinberg of the President’s Office. The Committee will be aided in its work by Judith Auerbach of the executive search firm of Auerbach Associates, who also supported the School’s previous dean search, which resulted in Dean Hack’s original appointment.
