The search committee for a new dean of the University of Iowa Tippie College of Business has been formed, with the UI College of Law dean leading the group, according to the Provost's Office.

UI Provost P. Barry Butler selected Dean Gail Agrawal to lead the 16-person committee to replace Dean William Hunter, who announced plans to retire in March.

"They've already met over the summer, which is a good sign they want to get moving on it," Butler said. "[A dean search] takes time. You've got to be on schedule at the right point."

Butler said the business-school committee has drafted a position description, with the hope of naming a dean by July 1, 2012.

A search committee for a new dean in the College of Engineering is close to being formed, said Butler, who left the position in October. Alec Scranton is acting interim dean of the school.
