I encourage you to meet all of the finalists during their visits to campus, and submit your feedback and evaluations using the online evaulation tool. Your advice will be crucial to my decision-making. Two forums open to the full campus community will be held during each candidate’s visit to help ensure that you have an opportunity to meet them. The dates, times, and locations of these forums, along with each candidate’s cv, will be posted on this search website.

I am grateful to the search committee, co-chaired by Creasie Finney Hairston, Dean of the Jane Addams College of Social Work, and Astrida Orle Tantillo, Dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, for their excellent work.  The full committee membership is listed at the search website.

If you have questions, please contact the search coordinator, Susan Ramirez, at ssramir@uic.edu.

Sincerely,

Lon S. Kaufman
Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs and Provost
