After a national search for the next dean of the College of Veterinary Medicine, the university will keep the search open and continue recruiting candidates, according to K-State President Richard Myers and Provost and Senior Vice President April Mason. Bonnie Rush has agreed to remain as interim dean during the extended process.

"I thank Dr. Bonnie Rush for her willingness to continue to serve as interim dean of the college," Mason said. "She has assisted the college greatly in this time of transition. I also thank the College of Veterinary Medicine, the search committee and campus leadership for their current and future participation in the search."

John Buckwalter, dean of the College of Human Ecology, will be the new chair of the search committee. Incoming Provost Charles Taber will lead the search committee organization and process in conjunction with K-State President Richard Myers.
