Announcement Regarding Dean of Architecture, Planning and Preservation Mark Wigley

September 23, 2013

Dear fellow members of the Columbia community:

After nearly a decade of innovative leadership, Dean of Architecture, Planning and Preservation Mark Wigley has shared the news that this will be his final academic year as the School's dean.

Let me just say now that Mark has been an extraordinary dean, a University citizen of the first order, and a friend I, and I know we, cherish.  In every context, he has represented the School and the institution in ways that make us all proud to be part of such a vibrant place.  And to all of it he has brought his unique humor and made us laugh. 

We will have ample time to celebrate Mark's tenure as Dean in the months ahead.  We will also begin assembling a search committee for the next dean.  For the present, please join me in congratulating and thanking Mark for his service to Columbia, architecture, our city, and our world.

Sincerely,

Lee C. Bollinger
