Last Spring semester, it was announced that the dean for the Rossin College of Engineering and Applied Sciences would be leaving Lehigh. Since then, a committee has been formed of different staff, faculty and students to search for a new one. I was asked last semester to join this search committee as the undergraduate student representative. There is also a graduate student representative who is a civil engineer. So far we have met a couple times, met with the department chairs, and held a town hall for students and faculty to attend to express their opinions. It has been an interesting experience so far. We are working with an outside firm, who will lead the search and find candidates for us to review. We’re hoping to have a dean selected this semester. I’m excited to see the candidates and see who we end up selecting for interviews. So wish us luck!
