Dean Terri Weaver's successor to be selected via national search
The search for the ninth dean of the University of Illinois Chicago College of Nursing is underway. Full details of the opportunity can be found on the search website.

In July 2020, UIC announced the decision by Dean Terri E. Weaver, PhD, RN, FAAN, ATSF, to retire in August 2021. The emailed announcement from Robert A. Barish, MD, MBA, vice chancellor for health affairs, outlined Weaver’s many accomplishments and committed to a national search to find her replacement.
Barish also commented, “Throughout her tenure, [Dean Weaver] has significantly influenced the academic, research and care delivery mission of the college to serve our students, faculty, staff and communities across the state.” He then added, “We are immensely grateful for the steadfast and innovative leadership of Dean Weaver for more than a decade.”
A celebration honoring Weaver’s service as dean will be planned for 2021.
