Dear Members of the Institute for Mathematical and Behavioral Sciences:
As you know, Jean-Claude and Dina Falmagne committed to making a gift totaling $3 million to support 3 endowed chairs in mathematical psych/mathematical cognitive sciences. After discussions with the donors, and the outcome of searches in Cognitive Sciences, we have worked to amend the original gift agreement so that the third chair will be for a faculty member who will be affiliated with the Institute for Mathematical Behavioral Sciences. This faculty member will be housed in whichever of the School's departments is most appropriate. We will constitute a search committee of IMBS faculty, but will ask departments to review candidates on the long shortlist whom they might house.
At this stage, however, in order for the gift amendment to be approved and finalized, the Academic Senate requires a faculty vote in order for us to accept this revised gift agreement. Per the process we determined earlier this year, the School's Executive Committee will vote on endowed chair proposals that could be housed in any School department, rather than requiring separate votes from each relevant department in the School. Given that this chair is being proposed to be designated for an IMBS faculty member, it is also appropriate for IMBS faculty affiliates to vote (separate vote and email being sent).
Please vote on your approval, rejection or abstention on the Jean-Claude and Dina Falmagne Chair for the Institute for Mathematical Behavioral Sciences. Additional information attached for your review.

VOTE OPENS AT 10:00AM TODAY AND CLOSES AT MIDNIGHT ON MAY 17TH!!!
