Dean Search Update
Posted 8:48 PM by Nate
In case some of you missed it, this is an update on the Law School Dean search posted to the Listserv by Angela Sanchez (Student Member of the Dean Search Committee):

Due to the hard work and dedication of the search committee, I am pleased
to report that five candidates for Dean will be visiting campus over the next
several weeks. It has been a process that began in the late spring with
meetings to organize ourselves and to develop an understanding of the
characteristics that a new dean should bring to the School. We then
created the job description and advertised it heavily. Nominations for the
position were encouraged and many contacts were made. Then we began a
process of sifting through the applications, and, more recently, of interviewing
the most promising candidates. This process has culminated in our decision
to invite five candidates to visit the law school, its faculty, staff, students,
alumni, and campus administration.

The five candidates, in alphabetical order, are all legal educators:

Jim Chen, Associate Dean and James L. Krusemark Professor of Law,
University of Minnesota Law School

Phillip Closius, Professor on Special Administrative Assignment
and former Dean, University of Toledo College of Law

Darby Dickerson, Vice President and Dean, Stetson University
College of Law

Gary Roberts, Deputy Dean and Sumter Davis Marks Professor
of Law, Tulane Law School

Jeffrey Thomas, Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs, Associate Dean
for Academic Affairs and Professor of Law, University of Missouri -
Kansas City

They will be visiting us on the following dates:


Thomas: 11/13 morning - 11/14 evening

Chen: 11/15 evening - 11/17 afternoon

Dickerson: 11/19 afternoon - 11/21 late morning

Closius: 11/26 evening - 11/28 afternoon

Roberts: 11/28 evening - 11/30 afternoon

The search committee is delighted to be hosting these candidates and
we invite your participation in meeting them and helping them to
understand the School and its prospects better. Members of the search
committee have been assigned to escort the candidates and they will be
arranging individual sessions with members of the law school community
and presentations to the faculty.

I have attached resumes for the candidates with this e-mail. (Omitted)

Roger Schmenner
Chair, Search Committee
