We have begun the national search for Extension's senior associate dean and I invite you to assist in recruiting candidates for this important position. The position description and announcement is posted on the Human Resources website.
We have taken the last several months, since the departure of Senior Associate Dean Dick Senese, to review the position and consider various alternatives. The newly posted position will merge key responsibilities from two senior level positions, senior associate dean and chief financial officer.
A search committee representing the various internal groups within Extension, including the Extension Faculty Consultative Committee and Extension Staff Consultative Committee, has met and is now working on recruitment. Members are: Ben Anderson, Trina Adler Barno, Denise Trudeau Poskas, Ying Iverson, Krishona Martinson, Matt Kane, Brian McNeill, Megan Thorson, Lissa Pawlisch, Tom Rothman and chair David Werner.
We hope to conduct interviews in mid-October. Information about those interviews will be shared in future issues of enews.
