Purdue Science dean search moves closer


The College of Science has moved closer in selecting the next Frederick L. Hovde Dean.

According to the dean selection committee led by Nobel Prize winner Ei-ichi Negishi and College of Agriculture Dean Jay Akridge, the application deadline passed Jan. 5. Preliminary phone or Skype interviews will be held Feb. 7 and 8. Candidates will then be selected for in-person interviews on Feb. 13. Most of those interviews are slated to take place March 22 through mid April. Initial contacts with potential candidates were made in late November.

Former Dean Jeff Roberts stepped down in July. Craig Svensson, dean of the College of Pharmacy, immediately filled the opening on an interim basis and led the college through the 2016-17 academic year. Roberts served nearly seven years as dean.
