J-school Dean Search to Begin Again T he School of Journalism and Mass ComnlUnication's search for a new dean is back at square one. The school had been courting Gerald Baldasty, chair of the department of commu- nication at the University of Washington, for the deanship. Baldasty declined to come to UNC after receiving a cotmteroffer from uw, according to officials in the school. A search for a new dean to succeed Dean Richard Cole, who held the post for 26 years, began last September. As ofJuly 1, Senior Associate Dean Tom Bowers, who is retiring next year, is serving as interim dean. Cole stepped down June 30. A new search committee began the new selection process in Jtme. Bernadette Gray- Little, dean of the College of Arts and Sci- ences, is chairing the committee, made up of ive faculty, a staffmember and an tmder- graduate student from the journalism school; a professor from the Kenan-Flagler Business School; and three media professionals. One consideration in judging candi- dates is how the new dean can balance the professional and academic aspects of the school's curriculum. In the first search, two of the five final- ists were newspaper professionals and the others, including Baldasty, were from aca- demia. Candidates from the previous search could be reconsidered.

But, as The N&O reported, that would
leave the universities to come up with the
funds to compensate for the loss of the
much higher out-of-state tuitions. The pro-
vision in the budget says that state money
wouldn't be available to compensate.
