Provost Tom Christensen appointed a 13-member committee to assist in the search for a new associate vice chancellor of research.
Martin Garnar, dean, Kraemer Family Library, will chair the committee of UCCS faculty and staff representatives. The committee is charged with reviewing candidates and recommending finalists. The position is expanding to a full-time appointment to provide leadership and oversight for campus research and sponsored program activities, provide oversight of policies and procedures, promote growth and development of sponsored project activity and develop activities to promote professional development of faculty for sponsored programs and research integrity.
Kelli Klebe, the current associate vice chancellor of research and Dean of the Graduate School, will maintain her role in the graduate school and return to the faculty in the psychology department.
The priority deadline for candidates is March 16, and applications can be through CU Careers. Garnar hopes to bring finalists to campus in late April.
