Northwest suspends search for dean of Booth College

Northwest Missouri State University announced today it is suspending its search for a dean of its Melvin D. and Valorie G. Booth College of Business and Professional Studies as part of an evaluation of the University’s vacant positions and budget analysis.

“I was very gratified to have such an enthusiastic response from so many candidates for this position,” Northwest Provost Dr. Doug Dunham said. “It is an indication of the high regard others have for the Booth College, its academic programs and its faculty. However, the fiscal realities make it necessary to rethink what we are doing and how we are doing it so that we emerge stronger, not weaker. I very much appreciate the time, energy, and thoughtful consideration those who served on the search committee gave to this process.”

Dr. Greg Haddock will continue as acting dean of the Booth College.

“Dr. Haddock has immersed himself in the work of the Booth College and has become familiar with its faculty and programs,” Dunham said. “This is typical of Dr. Haddock’s style and what makes him so effective as a leader.”
