University Announces Search Committee for
New School of Dentistry Dean

Bruce Jarrell, MD, FACS, chief academic and research officer and senior vice president at the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB), has announced the members of the committee that will lead the national search for a new dean of the University of Maryland School of Dentistry.

The search committee includes members of the dental school’s distinguished faculty, alumni, and constituent groups. The search will be an inclusive process with input from dental school faculty, staff, and students, as well as input from non-University leaders in dental education, research, practice, and policy. Jarrell noted that UMB has engaged the executive search firm from Isaacson, Miller to assist in the search. He hopes the committee will conclude its work by March 2014.
