6/6/2013: Mia Tuan? I suppose Charles Martinez came in second. Fair enough. UO is now searching for a provost and deans for CAS, the Honor’s College, and the Journalism School. Plenty of faculty and alumni anger about Michael Moffitt in Law and Kees de Kluwyer in the B-School. That leaves music and AAA?
I am pleased to announce that Dr. Mia Tuan has accepted my offer to become Interim Dean of the College of Education.
Her appointment will last from Sept. 1, 2013 until a permanent replacement arrives. She will begin as the Dean Designate this summer to work with current COE Dean Mike Bullis to allow for a smooth transition in the fall. The permanent dean search will be a full national and international search. Internal candidates are welcome to apply for the position.
I want to thank the campus community for the valuable input I received that helped me during this interim selection process. It was very clear that, during her relatively short time in the College of Education, Mia has garnered a great deal of support from her colleagues. I received many positive comments supporting her appointment.
Please join me in thanking Professor Tuan for accepting this challenge and for the great service she will provide to the College and University.
Senior Vice President and Provost,
