“I’ve been delighted by the collaboration. The spirit of Meliora is really there.”
Watch the full conversation, including what a successful culture of respect at Rochester looks like and the other important business of the University.
Meet Richard Feldman
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.
In March 2018, the Vision and Values Committee—composed of faculty, students, and staff—shared a draft statement that communicates the University’s shared goals and principles, including a commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion.
President Feldman welcomes input from the University Community, alumni, community partners, and the interested public. Ask a question, suggest an idea, or share your opinion. Your ideas matter. A member of the president’s office will review each and every response.
