No one has a greater stake in who is selected as the next Dean of the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, UC Davis than the California agricultural and environmental sciences community. Please join Western Growers in Irvine May 3 to discuss the challenges and opportunities the next dean will face, as well as the characteristics most important for the University to consider in recruiting and screening candidates.
The dean oversees cutting-edge research and top-ranked education programs addressing critical issues related to agriculture and food systems, the environment, and human and social sciences. The dean also serves as the Associate Director for the Agricultural Experiment Station. Chancellor Katehi values the College for the historic role it has played in the success of California agriculture and has a strong vision about its strategic global importance to meet the challenges of the 21st century. The University is committed to conducting an open, transparent search to attract a strong and diverse pool of candidates with the background and experience necessary for this critical position. A key step in this process has been meetings for various constituent groups to discuss the qualifications the University should be looking for in the next dean.
Lunch will be provided. Please R.S.V.P. your attendance.
