Status Report re: VPAA/Dean of the College Search
Dear Oxy Community,
We are happy to report that the VPAA/Dean of the College Search is moving into its third stage now that we have completed all of the community discussion forums, the online survey, and review of candidate files.
First, we have created a website for the VPAA/Dean of the College Search where you can find search documents, timelines, and updates as well as the results of the online survey, which had 113 respondents. The survey data and comments have been incredibly helpful, so many thanks to those of you who participated in the survey and/or attended one of the discussion forums. Please, check out the website and use it to keep updated on the search process. http://www.oxy.edu/pr
Second, the search committee has completed the review of the candidate files and selected the semi-finalists for airport interviews on October 23 and 24. We received 117 applications and selected 8 semi-finalists using specific criteria to guide our reviews and discussions. Seven of the eight selected semi-finalists accepted the invitation to interview. The eighth accepted a position elsewhere.
Finally, if we are satisfied with our semi-finalist pool and interviews, we will invite 3-4 finalists for campus visits. We have tentatively set campus visits for Nov. 14-18 and Nov. 28-Dec. 2.
As always, do not hesitate to let us know if you have any questions about the search process.
Co-Chairs Ruth Jones and Alexandra Puerto
