We need your help. About a year ago,
it was known that Dr. William Voris
would step down as president of
Thunderbird shortly after reaching
retirement age in 1989.
In order to get a head start on
searching for a successor, the board of
trustees initiated a search for a person
that would be the chief operating officer
(chancellor) of the School, reporting to
the president. The board hoped to find
a candidate who would become president
upon Dr. Voris's retirement.
Finding someone to meet the
demanding qualifications of the job
proved to be challenging, and the
search for a chancellor slowed, pending
a formal announcement of Dr Voris's
That announcement came on March
4 and a new search committee was
named, this time with the task of
searching for a person to step directly
into the president's position.
This is where you come in. The
Thunderbird will guide the future of
the institution and will have great
influence on the continued value of
your degree. The requirements are high,
but the search committee is convinced
the right person can be located.
Candidates will be considered on
their overall strength and appropriate
balance and combination of the follOwing
1. A Ph.D. or equivalent degree in
business administration, economics,
modem languages or international
2. High-level international business
and/or government experience.
3. Administrative experience as a

Dr. Daniel A. Chaij of the Department
of State's Agency for International
Development was the International
Studies Department's Diplomat in
Residence during February.
While on campus, Chaij presented a
colloquium to the Thunderbird community
The program, "Central America:
The Answers Are Still Elusive," outlined
foreign policy history and the rationale
for providing U.S. aid to Central America.
His message both contrasted the successes
of development assistance to EI
Salvador and Costa Rica, and reviewed
the political problems in Nicaragua.
"I know for a fact that there is a lot of
deep-seated empathy in America for
Lebanon. But the problem is that those
feelings do not often translate into
practical steps from the international
community to restore stability to
Lebanon," Bouhabib said.
Bouhabib, however, revealed that a
Lebanese Ambassador to the U.S.
positive attitude, emerging from the
conflict in Lebanon, is Signaling progress.
"There is a realization in Lebanon
today that no single group can eliminate
the other and no external power can
digest Lebanon, even if able to swallow
it ," Bouhabib said.
Bouhabib concluded by urging the
Thunderbird audience and all citizens
of the world to aid in the resolution of
the Lebanese conflict.
"We've got to realize that people are
different and there's nothing wrong
with being different. But we've got to
know how to live with each other. If we
do that, we can really live with each
other," he said.
Before assuming his current position
as ambassador, Bouhabib was employed
for seven years with the World Bank.
Bouhabib holds bachelor's and master's
degrees in economics from the American
University in Beirut. He also earned a
doctorate at Vanderbilt University in
