Dean's digest

Ni hao,

I recently returned from our annual graduation ceremonies in Shanghai, where we welcomed 51 EMBA and 8 DBA graduates to our family of 100,000+ alumni. It's great to be back home, but it's always thrilling to see the impact we're having on another culture and country halfway around the world.

Even though classes start in just about a month, we are now officially in a new year for the school. That brings with it a few things to tell you about.

Congratulations are in order

I want to congratulate Kevin Corley, who has been appointed the new chair of the Department of Management and Entrepreneurship, and Mohan Gopalakrishnan, the new chair of the Department of Supply Chain Management. Both Kevin and Mohan have been with the school for a long time, and I'm excited to welcome them to their new roles. I also want to thank the previous chairs of those departments — Trevis Certo and Dale Rogers — for all their contributions.

Media relations training

On August 15th, we’re hosting a session to show faculty and leadership the ropes of working with the media. This is a great way for faculty to learn about how to promote your research or how to handle calls from a journalist that might come your way. It’s also good for leadership to brush up on these skills every now and then. Sign up now to reserve your spot. We’ve also got free lunch for you during the session.

On the horizon

A couple annual traditions happen soon, on our way to the fall semester. Camp Carey kicks off on August 2nd, as we welcome the W. P. Carey Class of (brace yourself) 2021. Six camps in the cool pines, and thousands of brand new freshmen getting their first taste of life as college students. It's such an important event for us, and for our new students. Thanks to all of you in Undergraduate Programs who work so long and so hard to make Camp Carey the success that it is every year.

And then of course, we have the Ice Cream Social. No additional explanation needed. See you this afternoon!
