School of Medicine community invited to provide input for dean's search

An open meeting to provide input for the WSU School of Medicine dean's position description will be held next Wednesday, Jan. 19, at 4:30 p.m. in Scott Hall's Blue Auditorium. All faculty, students and staff are invited.

Dr. Gary Abrams, chair of the Search Committee for the Dean of the WSU School of Medicine, recently announced that Provost Nancy Barrett and the committee have selected Witt/Kieffer to assist with the search. Witt/Kieffer is one of the nation's largest and most experienced search firms that specializes in the education and not-for-profit sectors.

Two representatives of Witt/Kieffer, Anne Zenzer and Dr. Richard von Rueden, will visit Wayne State University next week to meet with Provost Barrett, members of the search committee and representatives of other key constituencies to generate a position description and specifications, Dr. Abrams said. Ms. Zenzer and Dr. von Rueden will be on hand for the open meeting as well.
