What happened to the dean of the Graduate School position? Will the interim dean of the Graduate School become the dean of the Graduate School?
The interim dean of the Graduate School will remain for about one year, while the Strategic Pathways process is completed. Some proposed reorganizations, if implemented, would significantly change the administrative structure of UAF, and it’s possible (for example) that the graduate dean position would be combined with another administrative position.
However, once university reorganizations are complete, there will be a search to fill the graduate dean position on a continuing basis, provided the position remains separate from other executive positions.
