“Greetings, Zicklin community. We are delighted to welcome Dr. S. David Wu, who has been appointed the eighth president of Baruch College. Dr. Wu, who will take office on July 1, is an accomplished university leader who has improved academic outcomes, increased diversity, and grown enrollment at George Mason University. He understands Baruch’s commitment to access and excellence, and to our mission of continuing our long tradition of social mobility.

Dr. Wu joins Baruch at a time when, under the leadership of President Mitchel Wallerstein, the College has achieved national recognition for social mobility, innovative academic programming and global education. It has been my pleasure to work with Dr. Wallerstein, and I look forward to serving with President Wu.”
