Dear Friend:

Plans are proceeding for the Da Nang campus for some time in 2012.

As we build staffing and leadership I have the budgetary approval to move ahead with a number of  key hires.

To that end I attach a draft job description for the Dean of Faculty.   Given the myriad responsbiliteis in helping to start a university, she or he will need to be a generalist and committed to team work as well as having familiarity with the developing world and the ambiguities or working in environments like Vietnam!
The AUV Website will go "live" in early June.
