Internal search for interim dean of College of Veterinary Medicine

Submitted by Office of the Provost and Senior Vice President

The Office of the Provost announces an expedited internal search for the interim dean of the College of Veterinary Medicine.

The university seeks a dynamic individual with a record of visionary leadership who can advance the college and its excellence in research/scholarship, learning, and public service through a bold vision of the role of veterinary medicine in discovery, research translation, and global health. He or she will implement a collaborative vision for the college that integrates its multiple missions of education, research, clinical practice, and public engagement. He or she will work to enhance and strengthen the college to distinguish itself in veterinary education, biomedical research, and public engagement at the state, national, and international levels. The position reports to the provost and senior vice president and is the senior administrative position that serves on the university's Deans Council.

The search committee for the interim dean of the College of Veterinary Medicine invites letters of nomination or applications to be submitted as soon as possible. All candidates are asked to submit a letter expressing their interest and qualifications in the position and a complete curriculum vitae. This position is open to current employees of the College of Veterinary Medicine at Kansas State University. The application deadline is 5 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 30, with interviews likely to take place in mid-September.

Anticipated appointment is by late September. Application for the position of interim dean will not preclude an individual from consideration for the permanent dean of the College of Veterinary Medicine.

The full position description, including required qualifications, may be found on K-State's job opportunities website or on the provost's website.
