I am pleased to announce the formation of a search committee to help guide the process and conduct an international search to seek candidates, both internal and external, for the Herbert J. and Ann L. Siegel Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. I have asked Stephen DeWeerth, Dean of the PC Rossin College of Engineering and Applied Science to chair the search committee.

Members of the search committee are:

  • Stephen DeWeerth, Dean, PC Rossin College of Engineering and Applied Science, Committee Chair
  • Jack Lule, Department Chair and Professor, Journalism and Communication, Committee Vice-Chair
  • Sirry Alang, Assistant Professor, Sociology and Anthropology
  • Alec Bodzin, Professor, Education and Human Services
  • Sherry Buss, Administrative Director, Interdisciplinary Programs
  • Anna Chupa, Department Chair and Professor, Art, Architecture and Design
  • Kwame Essien, Associate Professor, History
  • Jebrell Glover, Associate Professor, Chemistry
  • Julie Haas, Associate Professor, Biological Sciences
  • Erica Hoelscher, Department Chair and Professor, Theatre
  • Wei-Min Huang, Professor, Mathematics
  • Dawn Keetley, Department Chair and Professor, English
  • Kenneth Kodama, Professor, Earth and Environmental Sciences
  • Hartley Lachter, Department Chair and Associate Professor, Religion Studies
  • Jessecae Marsh, Associate Professor, Psychology
  • Cheryl Matherly, Vice President and Vice Provost for International Affairs
  • Vince Munley, Professor, Economics
  • Donald Outing, Vice President for Equity and Community
  • Katya Scheinberg, Professor, Industrial and Systems Engineering
  • Nick Ungson, Graduate Student, Psychology
  • Jean-Pierre Villamar, Undergraduate Student, International Relations

Linda Mery, Assistant Administrative Director, Office of the Provost, will provide support to the search committee.

Throughout the fall ‘18 semester, the committee and search firm will work closely together to identify the candidate pool. The goal will be for the search committee to conduct a first round of interviews, and develop a list of finalists who will come to campus individually late in the fall ’18 semester. Ideally, selection from these finalists could be made so that the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences could start July 1.
