The provost, by e-mail, announced to the College of Liberal Arts that 1) he will announce the interim dean in the spring of 2007 and 2) there will be a liason committee that will, in part, resolve all political issues and decide the size and partial composition of the search committee for a permanent dean. The composition of the liason committee is:

  • 5 CLA faculty members
  • 2 CLA staff members
  • 1 degree program chair
  • 1 non-degree program department chair
