Hello Faculty and Staff,

I’m pleased to announce that the Bryan School Dean Search Committee, working in cooperation with Provost Perrin, has identified four potential candidates for the position of Dean of the Bryan School of Business and Economics. These candidates have been extended campus visits.

The four candidates are as follows:

N. Raju Balakrishnan, Senior Associate Dean of the College of Business and Behavioral Science, Clemson University.

The preliminary campus visitation schedule for these candidates is as follows:

  • January 24-25 (arrive on January 23) – Raju Balakrishnan
  • January 31-February 1 (arrive on January 30) – Bruce Lamont
  • February 2-3 (arrive on February 1) – Shawnee Vickery
  • February 7-8 (arrive on the February 6) – Mac Banks

I have attached the CVs of the candidates. The visitation itineraries and updated information will be posted at http://www.uncg.edu/bae/dean_search/ as they become available. The link to the CVs will also be posted on the webpage.

The Bryan School Dean Search Committee members examined nearly 50 CVs during the search, and met twice in the later part of the fall semester to discuss the candidate qualifications and narrow the pool to a group for airport interviews. Within the past week, the Committee interviewed eight candidates at the Marriott Airport hotel; these interviews took place over a period of two full days. Of these eight candidates, the four finalists (above) were selected for further consideration.

Sincerely,
Daniel T. Winkler, Chair
Bryan School Dean Search Committee
