Candidates to visit UD for COE’s national dean search

Candidates for the next dean of the University of Delaware’s College of Engineering (COE) will visit campus beginning Tuesday, April 2, to participate in town hall meetings.

Each town hall is scheduled from 1:30 to 2:45 p.m. and will be held in Trabant University Center. The full schedule is available on the COE dean search website, with biographical information about each candidate available through a UD login 24 hours before their town hall. This livestream link can be used for each town hall.

At the town halls, candidates will present their vision for the college, followed by a question-and-answer session.

Recordings of the town halls, along with forms for submitting feedback about the candidates, will be available for one week after each event.

Co-chairing the search advisory committee for the next COE dean are Jamie Phillips, professor and chair of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Millicent Sullivan, Alvin B. and Julie O. Stiles Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and department chair.

Reporting to Provost Laura Carlson, the dean is responsible for the leadership of CoE, including the development, operations, and sustained excellence of all academic programs across the College’s schools, departments, and interdisciplinary centers and institutes.

The College of Engineering is nationally recognized for its exceptional educational experiences. With eight academic departments, CoE serves over 3,500 students and is supported by more than 180 faculty and staff members. 

Levi Thompson, who has served as the dean of the college since 2018, will continue to serve until July 31, 2024.
