University leadership has begun the work of determining the next Vice President for Academic Affairs at the University of Colorado system.
Vice President Kathleen Bollard recently announced that she will leave the post to return to her role as a faculty member at CU Denver in August.
A detailed job description is posted on the Jobs at CU website, where interested individuals also may submit an application. The initial application deadline was this week, but applications will continue to be accepted until the position is filled.
President Bruce D. Benson asked Leonard Dinegar, senior vice president and chief of staff, to chair the search committee, which will convene for its first meeting on Wednesday.
The committee will include representatives of Faculty Council, Staff Council, three provosts and others from CU campuses.
The president aims to have the post filled by Aug. 1.
A member of the president’s executive team, the Vice President of Academic Affairs also works closely with the campus provosts to achieve the goals of the chancellors, president and the Board of Regents. At the direction of the president, this person develops and implements systemwide academic policy initiatives and directives.
