I am pleased to announce to the campus that today I will be initiating a national search for a Dean of the School of Business at the College of Staten Island. In his message to the campus concerning my appointment as Provost, President Fritz indicated his commitment to national searches for all Interim Dean and Associate Provost positions. I reiterated my intention to do so in my recent Provost message. The School of Business has taken great strides under the leadership of Interim Founding Dean Susan Holak and we are all grateful for her contributions to date. I look forward to working with faculty in the School of Business and the faculty leadership in conducting a fair and objective search.
