Under Harvard’s charter, a new member of the Corporation is elected by the President and Fellows with the counsel and consent of the Board of Overseers.

The search committee consists of Corporation members James R. Houghton (chair), D. Ronald Daniel, and Hanna Holborn Gray; Overseers Richard E. Oldenburg and Thomas S. Williamson Jr.; and President Lawrence H. Summers.

The seven-member Corporation, formally known as the President and Fellows of Harvard College, is the smaller of the University’s two governing boards.
