SEAS Search Committee Co-Chairs
Earlier this month, Interim Provost Bruce D. McCombe officially
launched the search for the next dean of the School of Engineering
and Applied Sciences. The search committee held its
preliminary organizational meeting on March 9, and is beginning to
develop a position profile, advertisements, and a website in
support of the search. To assist us with this effort and to help us
understand the campus perspective on the search, we are
scheduling two listening sessions at which members of the
university community can share with the search committee thoughts
and information important to our efforts in securing the very best
candidates for the position.
Listening sessions have been scheduled as follows:
April 11, 2012 from 1:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. in 414 Bonner
Hall, North Campus
April 12, 2012 from 3:30 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. in 101 Davis
Hall (Agrusa Auditorium), North Campus
These sessions are open to the entire university community; no
RSVP is required.
We also invite members of the university community to submit
their input and questions to the search committee by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will continue to update you as the search progresses.
