The name of the next candidate for the dean position in the College of Education and Behavioral Sciences was announced in an email to all faculty and staff on June 8 by search committee co-chair Marge Maxwell.

Tony Norman, current director of WKU’s Educational Leadership Doctoral Program, will be the next candidate for the dean position in CEBS. An open forum will be held with Norman on June 11 at 2 p.m. in the Gary Ransdell Hall auditorium.

“The search committee invites members of the WKU community to participate in the process and provide feedback through the search website,” according to Maxwell’s email, which announced the two unnamed candidates on June 1.


The search for the next dean of CEBS began after former dean Sam Evans announced his retirement for June 30, 2018, after working at WKU for 28 years.
