Search for New Dean of Education and Counseling Psychology

Monday, Jan. 23, 2012

The search process for the new dean of the School of Education and Counseling Psychology has begun. The search committee, comprised of Terry Shoup (Committee Chair), Lisa Goldstein (Education), Pedro Hernandez-Ramos (Education), Cynthia Mertens (Law), Barbara Molony (History), Lucila Ramos-Sanchez (Counseling Psychology), Paul Soukup, S.J. (Communication), and Minh Virasek (staff), was appointed in the fall and began their work in December.

The committee has retained the services of a search consultant and has just completed the position profile, available on the SCU website.  Nominations and applications are being accepted through February. If you would like to nominate a candidate, please submit them online via the profile posting. 

Following the application period, the committee will screen candidates and conduct phone and offsite interviews through April.  Top candidates will be invited to campus for onsite interviews later in the spring quarter.  As the timeline progresses, the committee will keep the community apprised of plans for the campus visits.  From the finalists, the committee will provide to the provost an unranked list of up to three candidates.  I will then discuss the recommendations with the provost, with the hope that the new dean will be on board no later than Fall 2012.

My thanks go to the committee for their diligence in working aggressively in conducting this important search.
