The College of Agriculture has narrowed its search for a new dean to three candidates, all from out-of-state universities.

Dave Daley, University Farm administrator, is currently serving as interim dean after the previous dean Jennifer Fox retired in June.

The candidates are:

  • Dr. Karen Jones, department chair for plant, soil and agricultural systems at Southern Illinois University.
  • Dr. Joseph Culin, associate dean for research and graduate studies at Clemson University.
  • Dr. Frederic Lemieux, professor and director of police science and security at The George Washington University.

Jones and Culin visited the campus where they met with students and gave a presentation on their qualifications on Oct. 13 and 16, respectively. Lemieux will visit the campus on Monday.

There is no timeline as to when a decision will be made.
