New dean for School of Business selected
Ronald F. Green, dean of the Indiana State University School of Business and a native of the Lowcountry, has been named dean of The Citadel School of Business Administration effective July 1.
Green will replace Earl Walker, who has been dean of The Citadel business school since 2001. He announced his retirement as dean last year. Following a semester-long sabbatical in the fall, Walker will return in January 2008 as a full-time professor of management.
Green has been dean and professor of management at Indiana State University in Terre Haute, Ind., since July 2002. Prior to that, he held several positions at East Tennessee State University, including associate dean and director of Graduate Studies in Business. He was an instructor at Furman University and a graduate teaching assistant at Clemson.
Green earned his doctoral degree from Clemson University, his MPA and MBA from Jacksonville State University and his BS from Clemson University. His teaching interests are in strategic management and his research interests are in business level strategy and health care strategy. Green was born in Charleston and grew up in McClellanville. He and his wife Carmon have one daughter, Sara.
Green said he is looking forward to joining The Citadel family. His first priority will be to get to know the faculty, staff and students.
“I’ve been impressed with the quality of the faculty and the staff. They are very engaged with both the students and with learning and so my interests will be to build on the very good things that are already happening here,” he said.
