The search committee for the School of Social Work
has just begun selecting applicants for interview:
According to Chairman Charles Garvin, the commit

plicants before making their recommendations
Frye in early March.
Garvin said that more than 100 people were
nominated for the position and that of those, only 2p
chose to apply. The other five applicants responded to
advertisements about the position.
According to Michael Ager, a graduate student on
the committee, a candidate from Australia was ink-
terviewed last week. He said that candidates from
within theUniversity will be seen next. "We are still
open to nominations," he added.
All four of the committees have based their search
on guidelines presented to them last spring by then-
Acting Vice President for Academic Affairs Alfred
Sussman. Among the suggested criteria were iden -
tification with the field, managerial and a-
ministrative ability, experience appropriate to gaib
tenure at the University, and fundraising abilities.
Each of the committees was required to nationally
advertise the open position and to follow Affirmative
Action guidelines in setting up standards for obje-
tive judging of candidates, Dougherty said.

LSA dean committee
to begin interviews

The long search for the next LSA
dean is well underway with the com-
pletion of an initial review of some 200
persons recommended for the post.
About one-third of those reviewed
currently work for the University.
The LSA search committee - com-
prised of nine faculty members and
three students - is ready to begin in-
terviewing some of the 200 individuals
who were suggested for the position,
Search Committee Chairman Don
Lewis said yesterday. Memos adver-
tising the position were circulated
within the University and nationwide
last summer.
THE UNIVERSITY began its search
in July when then-LSA Dean Bill Frye
was appointed vice-president for
academic affairs.
"It is such a major job," said Frye,
describing the position he held for more
than two years. "It takes a tremendous
amount of time. The basic intellectual
drive has to come from the faculty, but+
creation for that faculty to flourish has
to come from the dean.
"The job is not just administrative,
it's also leadership," Frye continued.
He emphasized that successful dean-
ship is largely ,a "matter of putting
proposals in front of the faculty. The
dean must recognize the problems and
remove the problems" so that LSA can
meet its objective of achieving "the
highest possible level of scholarship in
research, teaching and learning."
OF THE INITIAL 200 names con-
sidered for the job, approximately 60 to
70 were individuals from within the
University, said Lewis.
Acting LSA Dean John Knott said he
is among those who will interview with
the search committee, although he
stressed that he does not yet know
whether he would take the job if a per-
manent position were offered him. "I
have agreed to meet with them. I have
agreed to go that far," he said. "In that

sense they regard me as a candidate,
but they're meeting with a lot of
The job of LSA dean includes respon-
sibility for curriculum matters, hiring
and firing of faculty, working with
department chairpersons, and
budgetary affairs. Knott said he felt
this year was a "particularly
challenging" one because of the
University's financial state.
who were appointed last year by then-
Acting Vice-President for Academic
Affairs Alfred Sussman, said they have
formulated a list of criteria to serve as
an objective guideline by which to
assess candidates. Members said the
several page list of criteria was based
on talks with students, faculty, and ad-
Of the undisclosed number of ap-
plicants the committee has chosen to
interview, Frye said he expects to see
"at least four tosix" names when e
search committee reports to Frye and_
-President Harold Shapiro in the next
few months after its part of the selec-
tion process is completed.
Lewis explained that the individuals
whom the committee selects will "have
to be very good in research, have a real
firm commitment toward teaching, and
a desire to keep the college in the
forefront of academic excellence."
Shapiro and Frye will examine the
applicants suggested by the review
committee and will then make their
recommendations to the University
Regents, who "will want to see at least
three candidates," Frye said. The
Regents will make their final selection
in an open meeting.
If after being selected, an individual
is not already tenured within the
University, he or she must go through
the tenure process and be granted
tenure in order to keep the position,
Lewis said.
