Search Launched for New UMD Chancellor

The University of Minnesota has launched a nation-wide search to replace University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) Chancellor Kathryn A. Martin who has announced she will retire at the end of July after 15 years as chancellor.

A 15-member search committee has been selected and is led by co-chairs Vincent Magnuson, UMD Vice Chancellor for Academic Administration, and Nancy "Rusty" Barcelò, U of M Twin Cities Vice President and Vice Provost for Equity and Diversity.

Other members of the search committee include:

The search committee will review the candidate pool, conduct interviews with selected candidates, and recommend finalists to U of M President Robert Bruininks. The president will announce finalists and engage the campus and surrounding community in a public engagement process to provide key constituents with an opportunity to meet the finalists and to provide their input to the president. The goal is to have a final recommendation for the chancellor position presented by President Bruininks to the University of Minnesota Board of Regents at its May meeting. The international search firm Spencer Stuart has been selected to assist with the search.

A native of Rhinelander, Wisconsin, Dr Martin came to head the UMD campus in August 1995, becoming the first female chancellor in the University of Minnesota system. During her tenure Martin has led UMD through a period of robust growth and program development, which includes 12 new buildings and major renovations, with enrollment growing from 7,500 in 1995 to 11,500 this current school year. UMD now offers 13 bachelors degrees in 80 majors, graduate programs in 25 fields, and two doctoral degrees.
