Rawlings Will Lead Cornell for Third Time

March 25, 2016

Hunter R. Rawlings III (right), who is about to step down as president of the Association of American Universities, will next month become interim president of Cornell University. Rawlings will serve while Cornell's board conducts a search for a replacement to Elizabeth Garrett, who died of colon cancer March 6, less than a year into her tenure as president. Rawlings knows the Cornell presidency well. He served as president from 1995 to 2003, and then as interim in 2005-6.
