SUBJECT: National Search for CU-Boulder College of Arts and Sciences Dean Launched
I'd like to share the news with the campus community that a search committee
has been formed to lead a national search for a new dean of the College of Arts
and Sciences. John Stevenson, dean of the Graduate School, will chair the committee.
As you know, Todd Gleeson, who announced his resignation in August, will
complete his tenth year as dean of the College of Arts and Sciences in June
2012 and then return to teaching in the Department of Integrative Physiology.
The College of Arts and Sciences represents the academic core of this
institution. For that reason, it is critical that we secure strong and
visionary leadership for the college. Specifically, we will look both
internally and externally for candidates who will be able to build on the many
successes achieved by Dean Gleeson over the last decade, and who can lead the
college into an increasingly challenging and dynamic future for our campus.
Under Dean Stevenson's leadership, the committee will work on a timeline to
bring candidates on campus for interviews in the early part of the spring
semester. The new dean would then begin his or her duties prior to fall
In addition to Dean Stevenson, members of the search committee include Janice
Brown, professor and chair of Asian Languages and Civilizations; Jane Butcher,
chair of the Arts and Sciences Dean's Advisory Council; Carroll Christman,
senior development director of the CU Foundation; Jennifer Coffin,
undergraduate student in Economics and International Affairs and director of
the CU Student Government's Volunteer Resource Center; Andrew Cowell,
professor in the departments of French and Italian and Linguistics; Kimberly
Dickey, professor of Art and Art History; Monika Fleshner, professor of
Integrative Physiology; and Nick Flores, professor and chair of Economics and
fellow in the Institute of Behavioral Science.
Additional members include Theresa Hernandez, associate professor and associate
chair of Psychology and Neuroscience; Keith Julien, professor of Applied
Mathematics and associate chair of Graduate Studies; Horst Mewes, chair of the
Arts and Sciences Council and associate professor of Political Science; Helmut
Muller-Sievers, director of the Center for Humanities and Arts and professor of
German and Slavic Languages and Literatures; Gail Ramsberger, associate
professor and chair of Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences; Richard Rogers,
professor of Sociology and fellow in the Institute of Behavioral Science; Bryan
Taylor, professor and chair of Communications; and Margaret Tolbert,
Distinguished Professor of Chemistry and CIRES Fellow.
Questions, nominations and comments may be directed to John Stevenson, chair of
the search committee and dean of the Graduate School, at email@example.com.
