Just after Acting President Richard Englert made his State of the University address, Temple announced it will launch a search for a new dean of the Beasley School of Law and continue to search for a dean of the Tyler School of Art.
Provost JoAnn Epps vacated the role of dean of the law school when she accepted the role of Provost this summer. Gregory N. Mandel is acting as interim dean until a permanent replacement is found. The national search to fill the position will be lead by Keya Sadeghipour, dean of Temple’s College of Engineering.
The search for a new Tyler School of Art dean was placed on hold this summer, but is set to relaunch this academic year. Harriet Stinnett, interim dean since September of 2015, will continue to fill the role while the search for a permanent dean is underway. School of Media and Communication Dean David Boardman will lead the search committee once again.
“I want to thank everyone at Tyler and the Law School for their continued support during the search period, and especially for their unwavering commitment to our students,” Epps said in a statement released by the university. “Temple has tremendous momentum right now, and we are fortunate that the faculty, staff and students at these two schools have continued moving forward as the searches progress.”
