Dear Olin community,

We have a short update on the presidential search as we head into the Thanksgiving break and the holidays. 

The Search Committee has worked hard to pare down the list of candidates and is currently conducting a series of in-depth interviews. While we cannot share much from this confidential portion of the process, we can tell you how excited we are by the candidates and the conversations that have taken place thus far.

We are energized by the breadth and depth of leadership experience, dedication to engineering education, and enthusiasm for Olin that the candidates show for this unique opportunity.

We are also pleased to report that the search remains on schedule, and we expect to be able to introduce a new president to the Olin community in the spring.

We wish you a happy holiday season and look forward to sharing more with you in the New Year.
