MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The search is on for a new dean for the high-profile Humphrey Institute of Public Affairs at the University of Minnesota.

The current dean, Brian Atwood, will leave the institute next month to become chair of the Organization for Economic Co-Operation and Development in Paris. Professor Greg Lindsey will be the interim dean.

University Provost Tom Sullivan on Tuesday appointed a search committee for a new dean. David Wippman will chair the committee. He’s dean of the university’s law school.

The job will be advertised nationally. The committee will work with a search firm to identify the semi-finalists. Finalists will be invited to campus to meet with faculty, students and alumni.
