Dean Search and Screen Updates

Moving the dean positions in the College of Liberal Studies and the College of Science and Health out of interim status remains critical to our ongoing efforts to stabilize campus leadership. Therefore, despite the current budget challenges, we will continue to move forward with the searches.
