Search Committee Named for Next Vienna Director

| December 22, 2014

The Office of the Provost is pleased to announce that the search committee for the position of Director of Webster University Vienna has been named. The search committee, with representatives from the Vienna, Geneva and St. Louis campuses, has begun its work.  The advertisement for the position will be posted in early January, and the committee hopes to conclude the search by the end of the academic year.

Arthur Hirsh, Vienna’s director, announced earlier this month that he will step down from his position next summer.

“This is an important search for the Webster network,” said Julian Schuster, provost, senior vice president, and chief operating officer. “Our new Vienna campus, with its beautiful and strategic location, is poised for continued success. We look forward to identifying a dynamic new leader who will work with the talented faculty and staff in Vienna, with the network of international campus directors, and with the leadership in St. Louis to leverage Vienna’s strengths and rise to a new level of academic and operational excellence.”
