Pitt’s search for a new dean of students will start early next fall, according to Ken Service, vice chancellor for communications.

Pitt’s typical cycle for searches for deans of students, Service said in an email Monday, begins “in the mid-to-late fall.” Pitt plans to follow that cycle for Kathy Humphrey’s replacement, he said. Chancellor Patrick Gallagher promoted Humphrey earlier this semester to senior vice chancellor for engagement and chief of staff. Provost Patricia Beeson will name the members of the search committee in early fall, Service said. 

In the meantime, Kenyon Bonner, previously director of student life, will remain in his position as interim dean of students. Steve Anderson, associate dean and director of residence life, will continue to serve as director of student life in Bonner’s stead.
