Dear Colleagues,

The search for the inaugural director of the Siebel Center for Design has entered the next phase of the process with campus visits occurring in the coming weeks. Each visit will include a presentation focused on the candidate’s “Vision for the Siebel Center for Design.” Presentations are open to the campus community and will be followed by a question and answer session and an opportunity for informal discussion.

Because of the distinctively cross-campus nature of this appointment, we want to make sure as many faculty, staff and students are aware of the presentations and have an opportunity to participate.

Presentations will be held in the Monsanto Multimedia Studio in the Funk ACES Library (map) at the times noted below:
