Candidates for Dean, College of Education

Dr. Tim Crawford and the search committee have been working diligently to find the best dean candidates to lead UMHB’s College of Education. This fall, the search committee reviewed the dean candidate pool of 21 applicants and has narrowed the search to two finalists.

The finalists will each have campus interviews and will have the opportunity to interact with search committee members, administrators and our university community. It is important to share the finalists’ application letters, curricula vitae and statement of faith with faculty and staff colleagues in advance of the campus interviews so that people can become familiar with their backgrounds and accomplishments.

In an effort to move more rapidly in the search process, we are bringing the candidates to campus as we identify them over the course of the next few months rather than clustered all at once. Each candidate will provide a presentation to which all members of the university community are cordially invited. Additional candidates will be added to this page.
