LITTLE ROCK — The University of Arkansas at Little Rock has selected three finalists for the position of dean of the new UALR College of Arts, Letters, and Sciences.

The three are Shearle Furnish of Youngstown State University in Ohio; Johnny Payne of the University of Alaska Fairbanks; and Daniel Suson of Purdue University Calumet in Hammond, Ind.

UALR officials say they conducted a national search for the dean of the new college and that it is one of several national searches they're conducting as part of "an extensive restructuring process."

Announced earlier this week were finalists for dean of the Graduate School and for the new College of Education and Health Professions.

The Graduate School finalists, who will be on the UALR campus in May for interviews, are Vann Newkirk of Alabama A&M University in Huntsville; Jie Chen of the University of Idaho at Moscow; and David Devraj Kumar of Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton.

The finalists for the College of Education and Health Professions dean position are Ann Bain of UALR, Jimmy Ishee of Texas Woman’s University in Denton, Texas, and S. Rex Morrow of Purdue University North Central in Westville, Ind.
