Dear Colleagues:

In November, I informed the campus community that Kathy Dracup had announced her intention to relinquish her administrative appointment as dean of the School of Nursing and return to the faculty. Since then, the members of the search committee have worked diligently to advance the search. For a list of the membership, see http://chancellor.ucsf.edu/committees/Adhoc/DeanNursing/contents.htm. Their activities have included selecting a professional recruitment firm through a competitive process, obtaining input on the qualities sought in the next dean through town halls and interviews, and combining the resulting information with their own insights to define the position requirements.
