Provost seeks nominations for new engineering dean search advisory committee

CU Boulder Provost Russell Moore has announced he is soliciting nominations for students, faculty, staff and external community members to serve on the new search advisory committee for the dean of the College of Engineering and Applied Science. 

The committee will be chaired by Scott Adler, dean of the Graduate School and vice provost for graduate affairs. The previous search last year to fill the position did not result in a hire.

The CEAS dean serves as the chief academic and administrative officer of the college and works with Advancement, CEAS constituents and donors to articulate and achieve the college’s and the university’s strategic mission and goals.

“I’d like to thank Keith Molenaar for his continued leadership as acting dean of CEAS until a new dean is appointed,” said Moore. “Keith has informed me that he will not be a candidate for the permanent position.”

Members of the campus community are invited to submit nominations, including self-nominations, via the search advisory committee member nomination form by Sept. 13. Moore intends to seat the advisory committee by the end of September and name a new dean during the spring 2022 semester.
