Presidential Search

After what will be a decade of distinguished service, Baruch College President Mitchel B. Wallerstein, PhD, will be stepping down in June 2020. A national search for the next president of Baruch College of The City University of New York has begun. The City University of New York (CUNY) has retained WittKieffer, a global executive search firm, to assist the College and the search committee in this important process.

Serving more than 18,000 undergraduates and graduate students, Baruch has been a stepping stone to success for generations of alumni. Through its three schools—the Zicklin School of Business, the Marxe School of Public and International Affairs, and the Weissman School of Arts and Sciences—Baruch provides world-class business and administration management programs with a comprehensive liberal arts education.

Baruch provides rich internship, career, and networking opportunities for its students. The College also plays a pivotal role in the economic development of New York City and State, offering a wide range of postdegree training to professionals and consultations for businesses, nonprofit organizations, and governmental entities.

The next president of Baruch College will be a pioneering and entrepreneurial leader who shares a deep commitment and responsibility to the College’s mission of serving as an engine for the economic and social mobility of its students, as well as commitment to equality, fairness, and diversity.
