Farmer to select new dean

The search committee, chaired by College of Creative Arts Dean Liz Mullinix, is composed of 11 other members. These members include professors from a variety of FSB departments, a graduate student, an undergraduate student and a member of the FSB Business Advisory Council, which is a group made up of Miami alumni who currently work in various business-related fields.   Mullinix could not be reached for comment.
