Cornell trustees invited the university staff Monday to weigh in on the search for the school’s next President, as David Skorton will be leaving his position to head the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C. next year.

Jim Blair with Cornell’s Astronomy department believes a candidate for the next President needs to be a strong fundraiser.

Input from these outreach events, with thoughts from students and faculty, will be used to form a position statement to be used to recruit candidates for the presidency.

The Cornell Presidential Search Committee hopes to find Skorton’s replacement in the near future.
