search for a new Dean started in March-April 2012, following the announcement by Tom Krise that he would become president at Pacific Lutheran University. The Search Committee screened a large and deep pool of applicants, identifying nine semifinalists for off-campus interviews over a period of two days. In those interviews, candidates met with the search committee and, separately, with the provost. After the two days of interviews the committee deliberated and presented its recommendations to the provost to proceed with four invitations to extremely qualified candidates for on-campus interviews.

The Search Committee is chaired by Giulio Ongaro, dean of the Conservatory of Music. Members include: Patrick Cavanaugh, Vice President for Business and Finance; James Hetrick, Professor of Physics and Chair of Physics Department; Edie Sparks, Associate Professor of History; Brett DeBoer, Associate Professor of Visual Arts; Robin Imhof, Associate Professor and Reference Librarian; Corrie Martin, Director of the Women's Resource Center; Lisa Wrischnik, Associate Professor - Biological Sciences; Bob Berryman, College of the Pacific Alumnus; Daniel O'Neill, Assistant Professor of Political Science; Cathie McClellan, Associate Professor of Theatre Arts.
