This summer, Pitt students can voice their opinions on a to-be-decided dean of students.

The University’s search to replace former Dean of Students Kathy Humphrey will begin this summer, according to Ken Service, vice chancellor for communications. Chancellor Patrick Gallagher appointed Humphrey as senior vice chancellor for engagement and chief of staff on Jan. 14. In the meantime, Kenyon Bonner has assumed the role of interim vice provost and dean of students after working as director of student life for the past 11 years and associate dean of students for the past seven.

The timing of hiring at universities is cyclical, Service said, aligning with the academic year.

A search committee, which isn’t yet established, will conduct a national search for the new dean, Service said.

Bonner will continue to serve as interim dean of students while the search is underway, according to Service.

Service could not provide details as to how students will provide feedback on the job search, but he said more details will be available closer to the time that the search committee is established.
