Series VI: Presidential Search Committees, 1993-1994

This small collection contains materials used by the presidential search committees formed to find and appoint new presidents for both Barnard College and Teachers College in 1993-1994. Corinne Reider, Secretary of the University, was chosen by Columbia University President George Rupp as Columbia's representative on the Barnard Presidential Search Committee and as the Columbia representative on the Teachers College Presidential Selection Committee. These are, presumably, her files. The files contain CVs, memos, notes, references and other supporting materials relating to the candidates for the two presidencies. Also included are published materials relating to the searches as well as the announcement of Judith Shapiro's appointment as president of Barnard College and the appointment of Arthur Levine as president of Teachers College.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, only Columbia affiliates may view materials on-site. After clicking 'Submit Request', affiliates will login with their UNI and password. Appointments are required and will be arranged according to each individual repository's policy.
