The nationally recognized search firm Storbeck Pimentel is assisting the University with the search for a dean of the College of Education, Nursing and Health Professions (ENHP) and the search for a dean of the Barney School of Business.

ENHP Search

The search for the next Dean of the College of Education, Nursing and Health Professions (ENHP) has been underway since December. Here is a list of the search committee members:

Lou Manzione (Chair), Dean, College of Engineering, Technology, and Architecture
Jamie Auciello, Collegiate Director of Academic Assessment
Anu Bansal, Jefferson Radiology, Member ENHP Advisory Board
Catherine Certo, Professor and Chair of Rehabilitation Science
Dan DeMaio, Assistant Professor and Chair, Health Science and Nursing
Maleka Donaldson, Assistant Professor of Education
Karen Duhamel, Clinical Assistant Professor of Nursing
Karen Griffiths, Clinical Assistant Professor and Program Director, Respiratory Care
Megan Lee, ’18, Physical Therapy major
Alexa Perrefort ’19, Elementary Education major
Peter Schauer ’71, Board of Regents
Sheetal Sood, Associate Professor of Education
Mike Wininger, Assistant Professor of Rehabilitation Science

The ENHP dean position profile can be found here. The position profile was developed based on campus input provided through small group and open forum meetings held by our search consultants Storbeck/Pimentel during a visit to campus and through conversation within the search committee, which is broadly representative of the College. The profile outlines the many strengths of the College as well as the University, lists some of the key opportunities and challenges facing the next Dean, and captures the experiences and qualities the committee seeks in an ideal candidate.

Storbeck/Pimentel has shared the profile with potential candidates for the position and members of the committee, ENHP faculty, staff, and Board of Visitors have identified talented individuals as well. Additional names of potential candidates or sources of candidates should be emailed directly to our search consultants at

 Barney Search

Katherine Black (chair), Dean, College of Arts and Sciences
RJ McGivney (co-chair), Assistant Provost and Dean of University Programs
Daphne Berry, Barney Assistant Professor of Management
