MLaw Career Planning Head Shifts to Ford School of Public Policy

After 18 years in a variety of high-visibility roles at her alma mater, Susan Guindi, Michigan Law's Assistant Dean for the Office of Career Planning, is moving on—but only as far as our favorite next-door neighbors, the Ford School of Public Policy.
"We've been fortunate to have Susan's dedication, insight, and wisdom for a very long time, and we will sorely miss her presence," Michigan Law Dean Evan Caminker said. "Fortunately, as a true-blue double Wolverine, she's staying right in the neighborhood."
Guindi will join the Ford School Aug. 5 as Director of Student and Academic Services. She brings to bear her broad experience at the Law School, where she began as assistant director of what was then the Office of Public Service. She later became assistant dean for the Office of Career Services, which recently was reorganized into the current Office of Career Planning.
Although the Ford School mounted a nationwide search to fill the position, they found the best candidate for the job was just a few yards away.
"This Law School and its community will always be near and dear to my heart," Guindi said. "After a wonderful and long tenure working here, it will be difficult to leave. Luckily, I'll be only 25 feet away, in Weill Hall, and so can visit often!"
