The search committee for the next dean of the School of Education & Human Services began meeting shortly before Christmas to begin work on a position description. The final version along with other information may be reviewed here. A shorter print version of the advertisement appeared in the January 8, 2010 edition of The Chronicle of Higher Education.

Candidates are advised to submit their material by February 12 for full consideration, but applications will be accepted until the position is filled. The committee plans to begin telephone interviews in late February or early March followed shortly after with campus interviews for finalists.
