University to launch search for CGS dean

Pitt soon will begin a search for a new dean of the College of General Studies (CGS).

"I hope to name a search committee by May 1, but it takes time when you're trying to work with various groups to get the committee slots filled," Provost James Maher said this week.

Jack L. Daniel, vice provost for Academic Affairs, has been CGS interim dean since last fall. The college's last permanent dean, Robert L. Carter, resigned Sept. 1 after one year at Pitt to return to his former deanship at Wayne State University.

"CGS has made a lot of progress this year under Jack Daniel's leadership," Maher told the University Times. "The long-range plan they've submitted to me is a big improvement over prior plans. Even though there will no doubt be further evolutions of that plan, we have decided CGS has made enough progress that we're prepared to begin a search for a permanent dean."
