Jane Bunker Has Been Chosen to Lead the Association of University Presses

Jane Bunker, director of Cornell University Press, has been elected the seventy-third president of the Association of University Presses, an organization of more than 150 international nonprofit scholarly publishers. A previous member of the board of directors of the Association of University Presses, Bunker will serve as president-elect for one year and start her presidential term in June 2023.

Bunker became the director of the Cornell University Press in March 2020. She is the first woman to serve in this role since the press was founded in 1869. From 2010 to 2020, she was director of Northwestern University Press. She previously served as associate director and editor-in-chief at the State University of New York Press.

“It is an honor to return to the board of directors as president-elect of the Association of University Presses,” Bunker said. “The association’s shared values of diversity and inclusion, integrity, intellectual freedom, and stewardship guide us as we serve the needs of the membership and help to amplify the work of all our authors in order to — as we say at Cornell University Press — change the world one book at a time.”

Bunker earned a bachelor’s degree in philosophy from St. Norbert College in De Pere, Wisconsin. She holds a master’s degree in philosophy from Fordham University in New York.
