A 10-member search committee was charged this week to find a replacement for Teri Switzer, dean, Kraemer Family Library.

Switzer plans to retire July 1 following a 42-year career in academic libraries and seven years as dean at UCCS.

Mary Coussons-Read, executive vice chancellor, Academic Affairs, charged the committee Feb. 17 and named Terry Schwartz, associate vice chancellor for academic and faculty affairs, Academic Affairs, as the committee chair.

“I realize in a few months I will be leaving my profession of 42 years and the university I have long respected,” Switzer said. “I am fortunate to have been able to devote my last working-for-a-paycheck years here, among so many of you whom I now call colleague and friend. I thank you for all the support you have given me these past seven years. I look forward to continuing to be a part of UCCS as a community member.”
