Visits scheduled for LAS dean finalists

Four finalists have been identified in the search for the next dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, and they will interview on campus in October. The successful candidate will succeed Beate Schmittmann, who in March announced she'll retire at the end of this academic year.

The names of the candidates will be made public one business day before their visit. Their visits are scheduled for the following dates:

  • Candidate 1, Oct. 2-3
  • Candidate 2, Oct. 4-5
  • Candidate 3, Oct. 9-10
  • Candidate 4, Oct. 11-12

Each finalist will meet with students, faculty and staff, university leaders and external stakeholders, and also hold an open forum on the first day of their visit. The forums will be held 3:30-4:30 p.m. in 101 Carver.

The open forums will be recorded and made available after all the finalist visits are completed.
