Provost Announcement: Search for the UIC Dean of the College of Education

Dear Colleagues:

I am writing to inform you that we have resumed the search to identify UIC's next Dean of the College of Education, following a summer hiatus. This search follows the retirement of Dean Victoria Chou and the subsequent appointment of Alfred Tatum as Interim Dean.

I am pleased that the search committee will continue to be co-chaired by Creasie Hairston, Dean of the Jane Addams College of Social Work, and Astrida Tantillo, Dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. 

The committee’s full membership

As we continue, the search committee will be assisted by the search firm of Witt/Kieffer, which has considerable experience in related searches. 

The search website will be updated with the new ad and other materials as the committee proceeds with its work. Questions and inquiries may be directed to the search coordinator, Susan Ramirez,  

I am confident that with your support, the committee will be able to identify an outstanding set of finalists for interviews in the coming academic year.
