A search committee appointed by Rachel Croson, executive vice president and provost for the University of Minnesota, convened in March, with the goal of identifying the next dean of the College of Veterinary Medicine by the end of the fiscal year.
Serving on the committee are:

- Matt Aliota, assistant professor, Veterinary and Biomedical Sciences
- Marie Culhane, professor and chair, CVM Faculty Council
- Kristi Flynn, assistant professor, Veterinary Clinical Sciences

- Jody Lulich, professor and member, CVM Faculty Council
- Emily Pope, DVM/PhD candidate
- Joni Scheftel, Minnesota state public health veterinarian; alumna
- Bill Venne, director of Development & Alumni Relations
The committee is tasked with recruiting and evaluating a pool of candidates who will be recommended to Provost Croson as potential public finalists. Croson says she expects to announce finalists in May.
Faculty, staff, and students of the college, along with alumni and other internal and external stakeholders, are invited to participate in the public interview portion of the search. All interviews will be conducted virtually.
