UPDATE ON A&H SEARCH PROCESS submitted by Katherine Medbery-Oleson

On behalf of the A&H Dean Interview Committee, I want to provide an update. Our committee has identified four applicants
to bring to campus for open interviews.  The interviews will be held over the next two weeks, specifically on
Tuesday, Jan. 29 (3:15-4:45 p.m.), Monday, Feb. 4 (12:45-2:15 p.m.), and Friday, Feb. 8 (12:45-2:15 p.m. AND 2:45-4:15 p.m.)
I will be sending out Outlook meeting requests in the next day or so to everyone that will include more details (including names of
the applicants and location of interviews).

Here are a few details about the open interview:

  • the entire A&H division (faculty and staff), as well as one ASG representative, will be invited to attend each interview
  • the screening committee (consisting of 6 colleagues: Tom Almli, Leslie Heizer Newquist, Janis Juarez, David Lopez-Kopp,
    Mausumi Maulik and Katherine Medbery-Oleson) will ask questions during the interview, and the applicant will have a
    chance to ask us questions
  • each interview will be taped and made available online so that faculty and staff unable to attend can view them
  • eligible A&H division faculty members will vote on all of the applicants we are interviewing as to whether or not we want
    them to be forwarded to the Provost (who is the hiring authority); this means all, some, or none of the applicants may be
    forwarded for the next step in the recruitment process

Please contact Katherine (koleson@bellevuecollege.edu) if you have any questions.
We look forward to seeing you at the interview!
