Dean Search

Posted February 6, 2019

Georgia Tech announced today that four finalists have been chosen in the College of Computing dean search.

The search began last summer following the announcement that Zvi Galil, John P. Imlay Jr. Dean of Computing, would step down as dean at the end of the 2018/19 academic year.

Among the finalists announced today are College of Computing Executive Associate Dean and Professor Charles Isbell and Ellen Zegura, Fleming Chair and Professor in the School of Computer Science.

As part of the final selection process, each candidate will visit campus and present an open seminar addressing their broad vision for the College of Computing.

The hour-long seminars are open to all students, faculty, and staff. Interested individuals can attend in person, watch real-time via live stream, or watch a post-event video of each candidate presentation.

The finalists are included below in order of their campus seminar presentations:

  • Charles Isbell, professor and executive associate dean for the College of Computing at the Georgia Institute of Technology, will present an open seminar on Feb. 19, at 11 a.m. in Clough Undergraduate Learning Commons, Room 152.
