College of Business searching for new dean

The University is searching for a new dean for the College of Business, the largest undergraduate major program on campus. Current Dean Ajay Menon announced his intention to resign in early 2014. Menon will officially step down at the end of the semester.

There are now four finalists for the dean position, each from a different university across the country. Over the next two weeks, each will host open forums.


The four finalists are Erik Rolland, interim dean of the School of Engineering and professor of management at the University of California, Merced; Beth Walker, Department of Marketing chair at the Arizona State University W.P. Carey School of Business; Caryn Beck-Dudley, dean of the College of Business at Florida State University and Yash Gupta, president and CEO of SDP Telecom, Inc.

Rolland will host his open forum Tuesday, Walker on Wednesday, Beck-Dudley Feb. 2 and Dr. Gupta Feb. 4. The forums will be held in the Bohemian Auditorium in Rockwell Hall West from 3:30 – 5 p.m. They will also be live-streamed online.

Faculty searches at CSU are conducted through the office of equal opportunity by the chair of a specialized search committee. The chair of the committee for this selection process is Dr. Mark Stetter, dean of CSU’s College of Veterinary Medicine and Biological Sciences. A standard search must allow for at least three weekends of advertising in “relevant national publications, websites, etc.,” after which the University accepts nominations and applications, according to CSU’s Search Manual for Faculty and Administrative Professional Hires.
