Two more YSU deans in job hunt


Two more high-level Youngstown State University officials are job hunting.

Shearle Furnish, who’s been the dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences for nine years, and Bryan DePoy, dean of the College of Creative Arts and Communication since 2009, both have been finalists for positions at other universities.

DePoy is one of three finalists to be dean of the University of Maine College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. He couldn’t be reached.

Furnish was a finalist for the provost position at West Virginia State University. He said he didn’t get that job but has applied to be provost and vice president for academic affairs at YSU.

Furnish said he wants to progress in his career and he’s at a time “where I do this now or not at all” in order to give significant years of service to a new job.

The two deans are the latest at YSU to leave or consider leaving in recent weeks.
