The Farmer School of Business (FSB), in the midst of its year-long search for a new dean, has narrowed down the pool of candidates to three finalists. The committee has invited these three finalists to attend on-campus open forums with students next week.
According to Director of Business Student Organizations and Diversity Michelle Thomas, the open forums are meant to demonstrate student involvement and to give voice to a major portion of the future dean’s constituency.
“We want the deans to understand we have a very engaged, active and robust student body,” Thomas said.
Two of these candidates will attend the interviews Nov. 4 and Nov. 6.
Mark Dawkins, the current Associate Dean for Academic Programs at the Terry College of Business in the University of Georgia will join the Nov. 4 session from 5:15 – 6 p.m. in FSB 0025. He has a P.h.D. in accounting from Florida State University, and now teaches accounting as an associate professor at the University of Georgia.
The Nov. 5 forum will feature Matt Myers, the Associate Dean of Executive Education at the College of Business Administration at the University of Tennessee. He received a P.h.D in marketing and international business from Michigan State University and is currently a “Nestle Professor” at the University of Tennessee. His session will be from 5-6 p.m. in FSB 0019.
The third candidate is Jorge Haddock. Haddock was the Dean of the School of Management at George Mason University and prior to that, Dean of the Robins School of Business at the University of Richmond. He is currently a full professor at George Mason University. His session had yet to be determined at the time of print.
