Update on Kellogg School of Management Dean Search
The committee formed to conduct the search for a new dean for the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University has begun gathering insight from the school’s faculty, staff, alumni and peer institutions about potential candidates for the post, according to an update posted on the Kellogg website earlier this week.
Kellogg finance professor Janice Eberly, who was named by Provost Daniel Linzer to chair the search committee, shared in a post on August 31st that she and the rest of the committee will begin meeting individually and collectively with a range of constituent groups within the school.
“Your counsel is enormously important, not only to inform the committee and the search process, but also to enhance our understanding of critical issues and priorities within Kellogg, which we will communicate to potential dean prospects,” she wrote.
Eberly invited members of the Kellogg community to share their thoughts regarding desired qualities for Kellogg’s next dean directly through emails sent to the committee at
She pledged to keep the Kellogg community updated on the search committee’s progress, indicating that the committee hopes to make its recommendation to the provost and president early in the new year and that a new dean will be appointed by spring quarter 2010.
The new dean will replace Dipak C. Jain, who stepped down effective yesterday to return to the classroom after serving as Kellogg’s dean for the past eight years.
