The University of Michigan is temporarily pausing its national search for a new Director of the William Monroe Trotter Multicultural Center given the unprecedented impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. The search was launched in March.
In order to maintain a proactive continuum of services, Nadia Bazzy will be assigned to provide support for TMC, in addition to her permanent position as the Director of MESA. To further clarify, no Interim Director will be appointed; instead Bazzy will have authority to provide support for staff and students until the role is filled permanently.
