College of Humanities and Social Sciences Dean Search

In August, 2017, Provost David Wu announced the departure of College of Humanities and Social Sciences Dean Deborah Boehm-Davis and the nationwide search for her successor.

The university has selected Isaacson, Miller, Inc. to lead the search. IM works with nonprofit institutions in education, the foundation world, arts and culture, advocacy and policy, and social service clients. The search process is anticipated to take approximately 6-7 months, with a goal of announcing a new dean for the college in late spring, 2018.

As the search begins, this page will offer information regarding its progress. Please direct any questions about this page to Anne Reynolds.
