Four deans reappointed after five-year reviews
Every five years of their tenure, deans of the university’s schools and colleges undergo a comprehensive review to assess their academic and administrative leadership and performance. The reviews include interviews with faculty, staff and students, and with external stakeholders. The provost appoints the members of the review committee.
Four dean reviews began last fall and have been completed: School of Veterinary Medicine Dean Mark Markel, College of Engineering Dean Ian Robertson, College of Letters & Science Dean Karl Scholz and College of Agricultural and Life Sciences Dean Kathryn VandenBosch. All four deans have received feedback on the results of their reviews and all have agreed to accept reappointment to their positions.
Chancellor Rebecca Blank and Provost Sarah Mangelsdorf wish to express their appreciation to the chairs and members of the four dean review teams and to all who contributed their input to the reviews.
