FIRST UPDATE on the search for the next
Dean of the College of the Arts
Kennesaw State University


From Dr. Robert "Robin" Dorff,
Dean, College of Humanities and Social Sciences
Chair of the Search Committee


We are pleased to inform the Kennesaw State University community that our Dean of the College of the Arts (COTA) search is under way.


Our first search committee meeting with the search consultant was held in late November 2012, and we discussed the search process and key criteria for organizing a search; reviewed a preliminary timeline; and laid the groundwork for the first important steps that will launch the search. Based on her research and campus conversations, our consultant in collaboration with the Search Committee developed a job ad describing a set of preferred qualifications and experiences for our next Dean. The job ad has been posted in a number of publications including the Chronicle of Higher Education, Inside Higher Education, and a range of additional sites.


We urge you to suggest people you know who could serve effectively as our next Dean or those who might recommend potential candidates. Please complete the confidential on-line nomination form on this website or forward their name(s) to our consultant. The success of our search will depend on the involvement, support and interest of members of the Kennesaw State University community.


Our consultant has begun to work on generating a robust candidate pool. In addition to posting the job ad in key publications, she will reach out to a broad network of contacts and follow up on nominations submitted by you and other members of the higher education community. The search committee will begin to review applications in mid-February and expects to identify a small group of candidates whose skills and expertise appear to be most closely related to our needs by early March. The committee expects to conduct neutral-site interviews in mid-March, and plans to invite finalists to campus by early- to mid-April. We expect the successful candidate to assume office by July 1, 2013.


You will receive another update on the Dean search in a few weeks. Thank you for your continued interest and support.
