The University was unsuccessful in hiring the finalist for dean of the dental school, and former Dean John Stamm will take over as interim dean May 25 while the search continues for a permanent dean.
Dean John Williams last summer announced his plans to leave after five years in the position. He will become dean of the Indiana University School of Dentistry.
