The appointment, announced by Dr. Ellen Harshman, interim vice president for academic affairs, is effective April 1, 2015.

Dr. Linhorst succeeds Dr. Edwin Trevathan, who is stepping down as dean to begin a new position as executive vice president and provost at Baylor University.

A fourteen-member search committee — working with AGB Search, an international higher education search consultancy — has been named to lead an international search for a new permanent dean.

“I know that the College community joins me in expressing appreciation to Dr. Linhorst for his willingness to serve the College in this transition of leadership,” said Dr. Harshman. “A strong faculty of distinguished teachers and scholars, growing enrollments, and diversity of undergraduate and graduate programs position the college well for the future.”
