Committee Begins Search for New Fuqua Dean
Durham, NC - When the current dean of the Fuqua School of Business, William Boulding, began his term in the summer of 2011, Provost Peter Lange announced at that time that an international search would commence in his second year. In keeping with this plan, Provost Lange has announced that Finance Professor David Robinson has been appointed to chair the committee that has been formed to conduct this search.
Lange charged the 17-person committee to conduct an international search that is open to both internal and external candidates. The ideal candidate will be
- an intellectual and strategic leader among the faculty, who can be expected to have the highest aspirations in faculty hiring and retention,
- an energetic and conscientious administrator broadly familiar with issues in higher education and with strong linkages to the business community,
- a strong advocate for the Fuqua School and its research and teaching mission, in the context of the university's strategic commitment to internationalization and interdisciplinarity,
- a strong proponent for a diverse faculty and student body,
- an effective fund-raiser,
- a preeminent university citizen
