Committee members, all of whom are affiliated with the Greensburg campus, are: Richard Blevins, associate professor of English and chair of the Division of Humanities; Anthony Boldurian, professor of anthropology; William Hoffman III, president of the Pitt-Greensburg Alumni Association; Jacqueline Horrall, assistant professor of economics; Ronald A. Magnuson, chair of the UPG advisory board; Diane Marsh, professor of psychology; Emily Nalevanko, president of the UPG Student Government Association; Dean Nelson, assistant professor of natural sciences and mathematics and assistant vice president for Academic Affairs; Norman W. Scanlon, associate professor of political science and chair of the Division of Behavioral Sciences; Elizabeth Tiedemann, staff representative, director of Career Services, and Judith Vollmer, professor of English.

A statement from the provost said the search committee is expected to identify Cassell’s successor by next spring.
