Trubek resigns to become WAGE director

David Trubek, dean of international studies at UW-Madison, will leave that position July 31 to become director of the university's Center for World Affairs and the Global Economy. 




WAGE, created in 1995, is designed to improve the university's strength in global economic issues and make that knowledge accessible to Wisconsin residents and organizations. It operates as part of the International Institute, an umbrella organization that includes most international studies programs. 




Trubek replaces economics professor Donald Nichols who will stay with WAGE as a senior fellow.

Trubek joined the university's law faculty in 1973 and was appointed dean of international studies in 1990. He is currently the longest-serving dean at UW-Madison. 




A search committee headed by political science Professor Mark Beissinger and including faculty and staff from a variety of UW-Madison schools and colleges will be charged with finding Trubek's replacement.
