College of Business and Public Policy hiring interim dean

by Chris Huston  |   

The College of Business and Public Policy (CBPP) at the University of Alaska Anchorage is seeking an interim Dean to serve a two-year appointment beginning in May 2020. CBPP offers outstanding undergraduate programs in accounting and finance, economics, information systems and decision sciences, logistics, and management and marketing. CBPP also offers graduate programs in Business Administration, Public Policy & Administration, and Global Supply Chain Management. CBPP faculty, including faculty from the Institute of Social and Economic Research (ISER), are recognized nationally and internationally for their cutting edge, policy-relevant research. CBPP students go on to successful careers in the private and public sector and have been accepted into some of the best graduate programs in the world including Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard, Cornell, Duke, UCLA, Purdue, and others.

CBPP is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).

We seek an interim Dean with a successful track record of leadership experience who has a clear two year vision for the college. The interim Dean will help CBPP navigate the challenging fiscal situation over the next two years while at the same time serving as a positive visionary leader to students, staff, and faculty.

The successful candidate should have strong connections with the Alaska business community and a willingness to build and maintain professional relationships with an eye toward raising funds for CBPP. While academic experience is not a prerequisite, candidates should have an understanding of academic environments, an appreciation for faculty-administration shared governance, a collaborative leadership style, and a record of promoting positive working environments. A successful interim Dean will prepare CBPP for long-term sustainability.

If you are interested in this position, please go to where detailed instructions are posted. If you would like to nominate someone for this position or have questions, please email or call the search committee chair, Dr. Lance Howe, at or 907-786-5409.
