Open forums announced for Business dean search

The search committee for the next dean of the College of Business will host two open forums in December to solicit feedback from the university community. The forums will be held:

  • Monday, Dec. 3, 1-2 p.m., 3164 Gerdin
  • Thursday, Dec. 6, 4-5 p.m., 2200 Gerdin (Krieger Board Room)

The forums are an opportunity for students, faculty and staff to learn more about the search, including the role of the search committee and a timeline for the search, as well as provide input on characteristics they would like to see in the next Business dean.

The search committee is co-chaired by associate provost for academic personnel Dawn Bratsch-Prince and College of Human Sciences dean Pam White. Bratsch-Prince, White and senior vice president and provost Jonathan Wickert will attend the forums.

Questions regarding the search or nominations for the position may be directed to Julie Tarbox in the provost's office.

Former Business dean Labh Hira retired in March and currently serves as interim president of the Iowa State University Foundation. Michael Crum, professor and Ruan Chair in Supply Chain Management, is serving as interim Raisbeck Endowed Dean of the college.
