On Wednesday, Sept. 9, a public forum was held in Gregg Pavilion in which students were given the opportunity to speak on their hopes and expectations for the next Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. The meeting was led by the CAS Dean Search Advisory Committee in conjunction with Isaacson, Miller, a “national executive search firm.” There were seven students in attendance.

After Tuajuanda Jordan’s departure to St. Mary’s College last year, Lewis & Clark contracted Isaacson, Miller to search and recruit candidates for the open position. At present, Jerusha Detweiler-Bedell, associate professor of psychology, is the Interim Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. The firm plans to conduct their search both internally and externally, looking at outside candidates as well as the current faculty and administration of LC. According to the firm, a group of candidates will be selected by the spring of 2015.
