College of Law Dean Search Committee to Meet with Key Stakeholders
The search committee appointed to identify a new dean for the Syracuse University College of Law announced today that it will schedule a series of meetings with University stakeholders as the search process progresses.
The committee, chaired by Associate Provost for Faculty Affairs and Professor of Law LaVonda N. Reed, will be scheduling a series of meetings with stakeholders such as College of Law students, faculty, staff, and alumni as well as members of the larger University community. Representatives of the search firm Korn Ferry, which is assisting in the search process, will also take part.
The sessions will occur October 13-16 with specific times and locations to be announced.
The committee, which has met twice, also announced the addition of two new members to the 11-member search committee. They are Dean Kenneth Kavajecz of the Martin J. Whitman School of Management and Professor Rakesh Anand, a faculty member in the College of Law.
The committee is tasked with identifying a successor to former Dean Hannah Arterian, who stepped down in August after 13 years as dean to resume her teaching and scholarly work as a member of the College of Law faculty. William C. Banks, Board of Advisers Distinguished Professor of Law and founding director of the Institute for National Security and Counterterrorism at the College of Law, currently serves as interim dean. He also holds a joint appointment as professor of public administration and international affairs at the Maxwell School.
