As members of the Board of Chancellors, Alexander, Gregerson, and Ostriker will consult with the organization on matters of artistic programming, serve as judges for the organization’s largest prizes for poets, and act as ambassadors of poetry in the world at large. The new Chancellors were selected by the fifteen members of the Academy’s current Board of Chancellors, and each will serve for a period of six years. They will fill the seats vacated by Edward Hirsch, Marilyn Hacker, and Marie Ponsot, whose terms as Chancellors have concluded.
