Dean Kathryn VandenBosch

Every five years, academic deans and directors of the university’s schools and colleges undergo a comprehensive review to assess their academic and administrative leadership and performance in such areas as external relations and resource management. The review includes interviews with faculty, staff and students and with external stakeholders. The provost appoints the members of the review committee.

CALS Dean Kathryn VandenBosch is among the four UW-Madison academic deans and directors to undergo review this fall. The other deans undergoing review are College of Engineering Dean Ian Robertson, College of Letters & Science Dean John Karl Schultz and School of Veterinary Medicine Dean Mark Markel.

VandenBosch’s review is being led by Katharyn A. May, emerita dean of the School of Nursing. More detailed information about the reviews will be shared with faculty and staff members in each of the schools as the reviews themselves get underway. Reviews are expected to finish by the end of the semester.
