    President Randel announced last month the appointment of Margo Marshak as Vice President and Dean of Students in the University.

    Since 1992, Marshak has been Vice President for Student Affairs at New York University, where she oversees a Student Affairs division that serves more than 37,000 students.

    “I am very grateful to the search committee, which was chaired by Professor Dennis Hutchinson, for bringing such a splendid addition to our University’s collective leadership,” said Randel in a written statement to deans and officers of the University.

    Randel also noted that at NYU, Marshak has been responsible for student housing and residential life, student dining, graduate and undergraduate student life and activities, the office of career services, the center for music performance, the office for international students and scholars, the student health and counseling services, and a host of other related activities.

    In addition, she has guided a $300 million program of renovation and new construction of residence halls, classrooms, language labs, dining facilities, student centers and health services.

    Prior to her position at NYU, Marshak served at the University of Pennsylvania as Vice Dean of the University of Pennsylvania Law School from 1982 to 1992; Assistant Vice Provost for Undergraduate Studies from 1974 to 1975; and Associate to the Dean of Residential Life from 1971 to 1972.

    A graduate of the University of Rochester, Marshak also received an M.A in Higher Education from the University of Michigan and a J.D. from California Western School of Law in San Diego.

    Marshak,whose appointment begins this fall, will work closely with the Provost, the new faculty Board of Student and Campus Life and the new trustee Committee on Student and Campus Life to enrich the academic, residential, social, cultural and personal experiences of students and other members of the University community.
