Baruch College, part of The City University of New York (CUNY), announced the appointment of Linda Essig, MFA, PhD, as the new Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs, effective July 1, 2021, pending approval from the CUNY Board of Trustees.
She will join Baruch after an extensive national search—with active engagement and strong endorsement from faculty, staff, and students throughout the College.
“Dr. Essig will join Baruch at a critical moment in the College’s history—as the College emerges ever stronger from the pandemic,” said S. David Wu, PhD, President of Baruch College. “Baruch has differentiated itself as a top-performing institution with a rich tradition of academic excellence, accessibility, and upward mobility for students from every socioeconomic background.”
