Decision still pending on Health Science search

Chancellor J. Dennis O'Connor plans to name a new senior vice chancellor for Health Sciences soon, although negotiations with finalists are continuing, a Chancellor's office spokesperson said May 10.

The search committee for the senior vice chancellor gave O'Connor a list of four finalists in late March. The new Health Sciences senior vice chancellor will succeed Thomas Detre, who plans to leave the job this summer. Detre has agreed to be interim chairperson of psychiatry from September 1995 through May 1996, while chairperson David Kupfer takes a sabbatical as a fellow at the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences in Palo Alto, Calif.

In a letter to psychiatry faculty, Kupfer emphasized that he planned to return as chairperson at the end of his leave.
