  • David Primo, Ani and Mark Gabrellian Professor and associate professor of political science and business administration at the University of Rochester
  • Joan Saab, vice provost of academic affairs and the Susan B. Anthony Professor of Art History and Visual and Cultural Studies at the University of Rochester
