The committee's objective is to conduct a thorough national search for the next dean of the School of Law and assist with the successful hiring of a top candidate.
The search committee is charged with conducting the search, evaluating candidates, conducting initial interviews, hosting finalists, and submitting an unranked list of acceptable candidates to the provost. The committee, with assistance from the executive search firm, will ensure that all stakeholder groups have the opportunity to participate in the process and/or provide feedback on the finalists, and that this feedback will be preserved, will be included in the final report to the provost, and will be used by the committee in its deliberations.
The search and selection of the dean will be conducted in accordance with ABA Standard 203. All faculty from the School of Law are encouraged to actively participate and provide feedback throughout this process, and the search committee is charged with ensuring that all School of Law faculty members have opportunities to engage in process and provide feedback. Collected feedback from faculty must inform committee deliberation and be included in the final report to the provost.
The search committee will be assisted by Anthem Executive search firm in this process. The search will be co-chaired by Dean Amy Henley of the UND Nistler College of Business & Public Administration and Chief Justice Jon Jensen of the North Dakota Supreme Court.
