The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art—where the lucky few study tuition-free inside a bold (and LEED Platinum-certified) Thom Mayne-designed building—has a new president-elect. Jamshed Bharucha, provost and senior vice president of Tufts University, will take office as the twelfth president of Cooper Union on July 1. The cognitive neuroscientist turned academic leader (and did we mention accomplished violinist?) will succeed President George Campbell Jr., who has held the top job since 2000. “Dr. Bharucha exemplifies Peter Cooper’s mandate that ‘the object of life is to do good,’” said Mark L. Epstein, chairman of Cooper Union’s Board of Trustees, in a statement issued today announcing the appointment. “A truly innovative educator, Dr. Bharucha’s interdisciplinary work combines the science of learning with a profound commitment to the advancement of the critical and creative thinking skills necessary to solve our world’s problems with dedication, ingenuity, and cultural awareness. Dr. Bharucha is the ideal person to lead The Cooper Union to new heights.”
