Richard Feldman became president of the University of Rochester on March 1, 2018. A distinguished scholar, professor, and administrator at the University for more than 40 years, he will serve on an interim basis until a new president is selected, following a search led by the Board of Trustees in the coming months.

Feldman’s foremost priority is working with faculty, students, and staff to foster change in the campus climate and create a culture of respect following an independent investigation into allegations of sexual harassment by a faculty member. He will also continue to ensure that the University’s ongoing strategic and operational priorities are effectively addressed.
