Search Process

Executive Vice President and Provost Hanson has announced the appointment of Carol Strohecker as the next dean of the College of Design following a national search convened in May 2016. The search was stewarded by a 12-member search committee, with input from internal and external stakeholders. Public interviews with four finalists took place in late 2016.
