In a July 1 announcement to the Stony Brook campus community, Chief Deputy to the President Judith B. Greiman said the SUNY Board of Trustees is expected to name an interim president for Stony Brook in early August, and that Wertheim “is ideally suited to lead us during this brief transition while maintaining his clear vision for the future of Stony Brook Medicine.”

A national search for the university’s next president will be chaired by Stony Brook Council Chairman Kevin Law, in accordance with SUNY’s presidential search process guidelines. A call for search committee nominations will be shared with the campus.

In his email message announcing Wertheim’s appointment, King expressed his appreciation for former president Maurie McInnis and the university’s achievements in her four-year tenure. “Stony Brook is a world-class institution, and I look forward to charting its future together as we begin the transition to a new permanent president,” King said.
