A seven-faculty-member search committee has been named to identify a suitable replacement, who is expected to be chosen by university President Robert Zimmer.
Slight hint at the difference in culture between Kellogg and Booth: Kellogg's search committee included a student and alumni.
I'll save my other specific comments about the Kellogg search until after that article comes out, but in general for people making decisions about Booth, Kellogg or Harvard, I'd say this shouldn't factor too strongly into your decision. From speaking to second years, there hasn't really been a noticeable change at Kellogg from Dean Jain to Dean Chopra, and nobody expects significant change next year with the new dean. I don't think any of the schools looking for a new dean are so unsatisfied with where they are now that they want someone who is going to make drastic changes.
