The University of Houston Honors College Dean Search Committee has identified four candidates for the college’s deanship. The position was left vacant after Ted Estess stepped down as dean at the end of the spring semester.

Candidates are James Duban, professor of English and director of the Office for Nationally Competitive Scholarships at the University of North Texas; William Monroe, professor of English and executive associate dean of UH’s Honors College; Marc Landy, professor of political science at Boston College; and Murray Nabors, professor of biology at the University of Mississippi and former director of the Honors Program at Colorado State University.

The candidates will participate in forums open to the entire campus community from 3 to 4 p.m. in The Honors College Commons at M.D. Anderson Library. The schedule is as follows: Wednesday, May 28 for Duban; Friday, May 30 for Monroe; Tuesday, June 3 for Landy; and Thursday, June 5 for Nabors. 

Biographical materials for each candidate are available in the student services office of The Honors College. The four candidates were selected through a rigorous review process, which included preliminary off-site, face-to-face interviews by the search committee.
