UPDATE: Hippisley was not selected for this position.

Fairmount College of Liberal Arts and Sciences Dean Andrew Hippisley is one of four finalists up for the College of Arts and Sciences dean position at Kansas State University.

Kansas State held an open forum for Hippisley on April 13 during his three-day interview process for students and faculty to learn more about him. 

All of the candidates gave a presentation titled, “Leading the College of Arts and Sciences in a Time of Change: Opportunities and Challenges” as part of their process.

This is the second job that Hippisley has been named a finalist for since coming to Wichita State in 2018. In Fall 2021, he was one of the finalists for the open provost position at Idaho State University.

Before coming to Wichita State, he was the first chair of the Department of Linguistics at the University of Kentucky from 2007-2018.
