Dear Olin community,

We are writing to let you know that Lynn Andrea Stein has agreed to be Vice Chair of the Presidential Search Committee.

Although Lynn needs no introduction on the Olin campus as she has been on the faculty since 2000, some of you may not know that Lynn recently returned to Olin having spent a year immersed with the executive team at Dartmouth College, as part of an American Council on Education fellowship. As part of the same fellowship, Lynn also spent a considerable amount of time talking and listening to administrators, staff and others at more than 40 other colleges and campuses around the United States. This experience will serve her well in fulfilling her important role during the search process.

Lynn cares deeply that this presidential search represents and reflects the entire Olin community. We will be partnering with her to more fully understand how we might achieve this. 

She will collaborate with us to finalize the process of selecting members of the Olin community to serve on the committee, interview and select an executive search firm to assist with the search and develop an overall timeline for the search. 

We are delighted to have Lynn’s insightful leadership as the search process continues to evolve.

Bev Wyse P’15
Chair, Presidential Search Committee
