Announcement of New President from Andrew J. Nussbaum ’85
June 1, 2022
Dear Amherst Faculty, Staff, Students, Alumni, Parents and Friends,
Since President Martin announced in September 2021 her decision to retire, the Presidential Search Committee, comprising faculty, staff, students, and trustees, has been engaged in the search for our 20th president. I am pleased to write that, at its Commencement meeting this past weekend, the Board of Trustees unanimously approved the committee’s unanimous recommendation to appoint Michael A. Elliott ‘92 as Amherst College’s 20th president.
