Chancellor Mark S. Wrighton has appointed an advisory committee to assist him in the search for the next dean of the College of Architecture and the Graduate School of Architecture & Urban Design.
Both the College of Architecture and the Graduate School of Architecture & Urban Design are part of the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts, a new academic and administrative unit that also includes the College of Art, the Graduate School of Art and the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum.
The new individual will succeed current Architecture Dean Jerome J. Sincoff and will report directly to Carmon Colangelo, the recently appointed dean of the Sam Fox School, who will arrive on campus July 1.
The Advisory Committee for the Appointment of the Dean of the College of Architecture and the Graduate School of Architecture & Urban Design in the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts is charged with identifying 3-5 individuals with the intellectual, administrative, personal and leadership qualities sought for the new dean, said Wrighton, who hopes to complete the appointment process by July 1.
Wrighton has named William A. Peck, M.D., the Alan A. and Edith L. Wolff Distinguished Professor, as the committee’s chair. Peck, former dean of the School of Medicine and executive vice chancellor for medical affairs, is director of the University’s Center for Health Policy.
