(Still) Wanted: New vice president for campus life

Looks like the 11-member search committee charged with finding a successor for Vice President for Campus Life Janet Dickerson hasn't found who they're looking for yet.

At least not according to the job opening still posted online and last updated on Dec. 2.

It sounds like a pretty sweet gig: A staff of roughly 260; annual operating budget of $31 million; oversight of the Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Students, University Health Services, the Department of Athletics, the Office of Religious Life and the Pace Center.

It looks like the money won't be bad either. Dickerson's pay — including her $256,042 salary as well as $38,318 in benefits and deferred compensation — stood at $294,360 in the 2007-08 academic year.

Dickerson is set to retire in June. In October, administrators said they hoped to have her successor announced "by the spring semester." Clock's ticking.
