Five finalists have been selected in the chair search for the School of History and Sociology. Access to candidate materials requires Georgia Tech credentials in order to maintain candidate confidentiality. Finalists will interview with faculty, staff, and students as well as present a seminar addressing their vision for the school. Candidate seminars will be open to the Georgia Tech community including students, faculty, and staff who can attend in person, participate virtually in real-time, or watch a post-event video of each candidate presentation. Georgia Tech community members who engage with the finalists are encouraged to complete a candidate survey to provide feedback to the search committee and dean.
The advisory search committee has developed a job profile comprised of the job description, an overview of the School of History and Sociology, and the leadership and administrative management responsibilities for the School Chair position.
