Red Parr on Ag Screening Committee


Three separate search and screening committees have been named by Kansas State University to review nominations and applications for the new associate dean positions designated in KSU's recent agricultural reorganization.

The committees were named Tuesday, September 23, by John O. Dunbar, who will become the University's new Dean of Agriculture and Director of the Agricultural Experiment Station on January 1.

KSU is now conducting a nationwide search to fill three positions established in a recent reorganization of the University's agricultural programs. The positions are associate dean and director of agricultural research; associate dean and director of the Kansas Cooperative Extension Service; and associate dean and director of resident instruction.

In announcing the search committees, Dunbar said the closing date for nominations is September 25.

"As soon thereafter as all applications and references can be assembled, the committee for each position will proceed as quickly as possible without sacrificing the quality of their efforts."

Final recommendations from the committees will go to Dunbar, who in turn, will provide recommendations for appointment to the Provost and the President.

No specific appointment deadlines have been set. But, Dunbar said, officials hope all the positions can be filled by late November.

According to Dunbar, Charles Deyoe, head of the Department of Grain Science and Industry, will chair the committee for associate dean and director of agricultural research.

Rolland "Red" Parr, an agricultural producer from Rossville, is one of the screening committee members.
