Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts Dean Search

Provost Rafael L. Bras has convened a search committee tasked with selecting the new dean for the Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts, following the departure of Dean Jacqueline Royster. The search will be supported by a external search firm and chaired by Bonnie Ferri, vice provost for Graduate Education and Faculty Development. 

John Tone, professor in the School of History and Sociology and associate dean of undergraduate studies, was named interim dean of the Ivan Allen College in April and will continue to serve until the post is filled. 

Michael Toney, director of Academic Administration, will serve as administrative lead for the search. 

A town hall for faculty, staff, and students to learn about the search process and timeline, and to provide feedback on the characteristics of ideal candidates has been scheduled as follows:

Clough Undergraduate Learning Commons, Room 152 

Nominations can be sent to provostsoffice@gatech.edu.

Details on the selection of a search firm as well as an application link will be made available on this site once details are finalized.
