As many of you know, we are launching our third dean search in as many years. Since I arrived, I've had the pleasure and responsibility of finding first a new dean of Engineering and then the inaugural Freeman Dean of the new College of Management. Now we need to find the best possible dean for Arts & Sciences. When Dean George Shields left in Summer 2017, Karl Voss was selected as Interim Dean and has been serving admirably in that capacity ever since. We appointed Karl as interim for two years to assure stability and continuity. As Karl enters his second year, the moment has come to launch a full search. It will be open to internal as well as external candidates. The next few years will be an important phase in the evolution of the College of Arts & Sciences, and you can help shape the future of A&S by participating in the search.
