Wake Forest University has launched a national search for its next Dean of the College and Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, succeeding Michele Gillespie, who was named Provost last April and Brad Jones, who announced he will be stepping down as Dean of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences in November. Tony Marsh has served as Interim Dean of the College since July 2022.

The search committee, co-chaired by Professor Dean Franco and Provost Michele Gillespie, kicked off its work in July.
