The search committee charged with replacing former Dean of Students Jim Larimore has identified a few promising candidates and hopes to bring the finalists to campus to meet with students, faculty and staff before the end of the academic year, Chief Student Affairs Officer Suzanne Coffey said.

The search for the new Dean of Students has changed to reflect the new role the Student Affairs office will play on campus. This year’s search, which features a slightly altered job description, will include greater student input in the search process, Coffey said.

The current buzz on campus is predominantly regarding the controversial Judiciary Council ruling that was made after an election complaint that was filed on Thursday, April 10.
