The Dean holds the Susan Welch Dean's Chair endowed in honor of the current Dean, who is retiring after 27 years in the position. The next Dean will have an unparalleled opportunity to lead a college integral to the mission of the University, develop innovative strategies to leverage the disciplinary diversity of the CLA, and promote and further develop the research strengths of its departments in the humanities and social sciences.

It has 21 departments and schools offering 47 undergraduate majors and 21 graduate programs. The Dean will foster a shared vision for the College that supports the University's commitment to research and teaching excellence, and to prepare students for life as knowledgeable and engaged citizens in a diverse and changing world. The College of the Liberal Arts seeks an accomplished scholar with a track record of transformative leadership and an understanding of and passionate commitment to both public higher education and the importance of the liberal arts.
