Search update for College of Veterinary Medicine dean

Submitted by Communications and Marketing

In June, it was announced that the national search for the next dean of College of Veterinary Medicine would remain open and that John Buckwalter, dean of the College of Human Ecology, would be the new chair of the search committee.

"As I begin my position as provost and executive vice president, moving forward with the search process is a high priority for me," said Chuck Taber. "To ensure that we attract the broadest and best pool of candidates, however, I have decided to seek the assistance of an external search firm. Dean Buckwalter will chair the search committee as announced, but I will look to form a new search committee and revisit the position announcement before we continue recruiting applicants. I want to sincerely thank everyone involved in the process to this point and ask for your patience and understanding as we move forward with this very important search."
