College of Business Interim Dean Ken Machande

The following message is from President Paino.

In December, Dr. Lynne Richardson announced that she would be retiring as the Dean of the College of Business in July of this year. After consulting with and receiving input from a number of constituencies, including the faculty and staff in the College of Business, I am very pleased to announce that Professor Ken Machande has agreed to serve as the Interim Dean of the College of Business and lead the College as we consider the plans and timing for an external search for a Dean and prepare for the next review cycle of AACSB.

Professor Machande has been a member of the faculty for nearly 20 years, has served as the Associate Dean in the College of Business since 2012, and also served as the Interim Dean of the College of Business in 2018-2019. Ken brings a wealth of experience, knowledge, and professional accomplishments to this role, and he will ensure both a smooth transition as well as further ongoing efforts to move the College of Business forward. Please join me in welcoming Ken to this role and thanking him for his willingness to further serve the University at this time.
