Lisa A. Gray ’86 (WMCL), chair of Mitchell Hamline’s board of trustees, announced Tuesday the four finalists to become the school’s next president and dean.
The finalists, selected by the search committee, will each have a campus visit during the first two weeks of December.
The finalists are:

UCLA School of Law, Los Angeles, CA
Campus visit: December 5-6
Anthony S. Niedwiecki

Each candidate will be on campus for a day and a half of meetings, presentations, receptions, and other events. Constituent groups will be provided with a link to a survey tool to submit feedback on the individual candidates. After each candidate has visited campus and all the feedback has been compiled, the faculty will meet to provide its input. The search committee will then make a recommendation to the board of trustees, which will vote on selection of a new president and dean.
Information about the finalists and the dates they will be on campus will be posted on the Mitchell Hamline website at https://mitchellhamline.edu/about/president-and-dean-search/.
