Staff Report

President John T. Casteen III has appointed search committees for two top positions soon to be vacated, the dean of the Darden School and the athletics director.

As announced previously, C. Ray Smith will serve as chair of the search committee looking for a new dean to replace Edward A. Snyder, who is leaving to become dean of the University of Chicago’s business school. Smith also is stepping in as interim dean.

The committee members are: Susan Chaplinsky, Martin Davidson, James Freeland and Pat Werhane, all on the Darden faculty, and Donald Wilkinson, (class of ’66), who is on the Darden Board of Trustees and will become chair in October. A student representative will be added to the committee in the near future.

“Faculty and staff members who are available in Charlottesville at the relevant times will be afforded an opportunity to meet with the finalists before a selection is made,” said Peter W. Low, vice president and provost, who will serve as an ex officio member.

The committee’s goal is to select a dean by the end of the summer.
Earl C. Dudley Jr., a U.Va. law professor who chairs the University’s athletics advisory committee, will head the nine-member search committee appointed to recommend a replacement for M. Terry Holland, who will step down as athletics director June 1.

Other committee members are: Carolyn M. Callahan, professor of education and faculty representative to the NCAA; Amy D. Cronin, chief of staff and special assistant to Pres. Casteen; W. Heywood Fralin, alumnus and member of the Alumni Association Board of Managers; Charles L. Glazer, alumnus and member of the Board of Visitors; William W. Harmon, vice president for student affairs; Jane Miller, associate athletics director; Andrew M. Virga, alumnus and president of the Virginia Student Aid Foundation; and Carl P. Zeithaml, dean of the McIntire School of Commerce.

Casteen will meet with the search committee within the next two weeks to discuss the job description. He and Leonard W. Sandridge, executive vice president and chief operating officer, will be available to the committee in an ex officio capacity.

Holland will become a special assistant to Casteen, with fund raising and other responsibilities related to planning for a new arena and special events center.
