School of Dental Medicine Dean Search Listening Sessions Announced: November 24, 2015

Published November 24, 2015

TO:  Members of the UB Community

The search for the position of dean of the School of Dental Medicine has officially launched; the search committee held its initial meeting last week. As the committee works to develop the recruitment strategy for this position, we invite members of the university community to join representatives of the search committee at listening sessions to discuss campus interests and priorities for the search.

The listening sessions have been scheduled as follows:

Wednesday, December 2, 4:30 – 5:30 p.m., 100 Allen Hall (School of Dental Medicine faculty only)

Monday, December 7, 12:15 – 1:15 p.m., 100 Allen Hall (School of Dental Medicine faculty only)

Thursday, December 10, 12:00 – 1:00 p.m., 107 Allen Hall (open to all)

If you are not able to attend the listening sessions, you are always welcome to offer input to the search committee online at this link. This survey site will remain active for comments and questions throughout the search, and collects all input confidentially.

A search website is active now with information on the search process, committee, communications, and application and nomination procedures. Additional information will be posted on the site as it becomes available.

Thank you for your interest in this important leadership search. We hope to see many of our colleagues at the upcoming listening sessions. I will continue to provide updates to the campus community on the progress of this search as there is information to share.
