UNCG Campus Weekly

Campus Weekly is published each Wednesday when classes are in session. In the summer, it is published biweekly.

Start of dean searches

Search committees are in place. Committee chairs have been announced. And the search process has just begun for three positions:

  • dean of the School of Health and Human Sciences
  • dean of the School of Music, Theatre and Dance
  • dean of the School of Nursing

A town hall meeting regarding the HHS dean position was held Monday. It was announced campuswide via Twitter.

Two town hall meetings will be held today (Wednesday, Aug. 29).

  • SMTD dean search town hall meeting, 4 p.m., Recital Hall, Music Building
  • Nursing dean search town hall meeting, 2 p.m., Room 201, Moore Nursing Building

All are invited. At the town hall meetings, participate in a conversation with the search committee, Martin Baker (vice president of Baker and Associates) and Provost David H. Perrin. Learn about the process, and discuss and provide input on the position description.

Baker and Associates LLC will be used to support the search process. The firm has been used in dean searches at the School of Education, Bryan School and JSNN. “They know UNCG very well,” Provost David H. Perrin said.

The three search committees met last week with Martin Baker, vice president of Baker and Associates, the provost noted.

Search committees consist of faculty, students, staff, deans, alumni and members of Development.

Dr. Mark Fine is chair of the Health and Human Sciences dean search committee. Dr. Susan Letvak is chair of the Nursing dean search committee. And Dr. Connie McKoy is chair of the Music, Theatre & Dance dean search committee.

Those unable to attend a meeting and who wish to provide input or those wishing to nominate candidates for consideration may contact the respective dean search committee chair.

More information about dean retirement announcements may be found in the article “Dean Departures” in the summer UNCG Magazine.
