Nominees for Vet Med search committee sought by March 5

Executive vice president and provost Elizabeth Hoffman seeks nominations for faculty members, staff members, students and members of other college constituencies to serve on the search committee for the next dean of the College of Veterinary Medicine. The committee will be co-chaired by Labh Hira, dean of the College of Business; and Susan Carlson, associate provost for faculty advancement and diversity.

Although the majority of members of the search committee will be faculty members from the College of Veterinary Medicine, nominations are sought for potential committee members from all constituencies of the college, including staff members, students, alumni, donors, industry and faculty members from departments outside the college. The intent is to appoint a diverse search committee that reflects the variety of constituencies, disciplines and activities of the college.

Nominate via e-mail

Names and e-mail addresses of nominees should be sent to Hoffman and administrative specialist Julie Ham, via e-mail, by March 5.

Hoffman said she expects to appoint the search committee in late March to ensure that the next dean of the College of Veterinary Medicine is in place by the end of 2010.

Dr. John Thomson, who has served as Vet Med dean since August 2004, announced Feb. 9 that he is retiring as dean, effective Jan. 1, 2011. He will remain on the ISU faculty.
