Message to the Campus Community — May 3, 2016
To the Bowdoin campus community,
I am writing with an update on the search for a permanent dean for academic affairs. As you know, Professor Jennifer Scanlon is serving as interim dean for academic affairs through June 2017. As announced in April 2015 when Jen was appointed, the College will conduct a national search for a permanent dean during the 2016-17 academic year.
A thirteen-member search committee from across the Bowdoin campus community has been established. Members of the committee are:
Jeffrey Cosgrove-Cook, science library assistant
Deborah DeGraff, professor of economics
Vladimir Douhovnikoff, assistant professor of biology
Martina Duncan, registrar
Guy Mark Foster, associate professor of English
Timothy Foster, dean of student affairs
Ryan Herman ’17
Belinda Kong, associate professor of Asian studies and English
Adam Levy, professor of mathematics and chair of the mathematics department
Mitsuki Nishimoto ’17
Elizabeth Orlic, vice president and special assistant to the president & secretary of the College
Hannah Reese, assistant professor of psychology
Clayton Rose, president (chair)
The search firm of Isaacson, Miller has been selected to work with the College.
The consultants from Isaacson, Miller will be on campus on Wednesday, May 25, and Thursday, May 26, 2016, to gather insights and information from members of our community regarding the search. Details on these meetings will be available soon. I invite your thoughts and comments which can be sent to the committee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
