ICPSR Council Chair Lisa Cook (Michigan State University) and former Council member Philip Jefferson (Swarthmore College) have been nominated by President Biden to serve on the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System.

Jefferson started his career as an economist for the Federal Reserve, and both he and Cook have consulted frequently with a number of Federal Reserve Regional Banks," noted a news release from the White House briefing room. "They will bring long overdue diversity to the leadership of the Federal Reserve, including the first Black woman in history to serve on the Board and the fourth Black man to serve on the Board."
