U. of Minnesota begins search for dean to lead its public affairs institute

 
The Minnesota Daily
 
December 8, 2010
 
The search for a new dean of the Humphrey Institute of Public Affairs is on.

The current dean, J. Brian Atwood, will take leave from the University of Minnesota to join a think tank in Paris. A search committee of Humphrey Institute faculty and a University student was named Monday to search nationally and internationally to find a replacement by the end of the spring 2011 semester.

Committee member Larry Jacobs said the search for a new dean is a "tall order."

"We have had the best dean that I have worked under in almost a quarter century at the University of Minnesota, so the bar is set very high," Jacobs said. "Dean Atwood has been extraordinary in reviving the Humphrey Institute and generating a lot of interest."

Jacobs sees the committee’s primary focus set on how to continue this momentum.

Atwood said the ideal candidate will be "someone who can manage through what’s going to be a very difficult biennium the next couple of years."
