Walter B. Roettger, Ph.D.
On behalf of the faculty and staff of the School of Business, welcome to spring semester! It is a great pleasure and privilege to join SUNY Geneseo as Interim Dean of Business. Dr. Mike Schinski completed his assignment as Dean at the conclusion of the fall 2012 semester and is enjoying a well-deserved leave during the spring 2013 term before returning to his teaching role in fall 2013. Dean Schinski’s tenure was distinguished by a number of significant achievements including the reaffirmation of accreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International (AACSB). I join his colleagues in thanking him for his leadership and look forward to his return to our classrooms next fall.
I began my responsibilities as Interim Dean on January 7. This will be my fourth assignment as a dean of business and I’m very much looking forward to working with faculty, staff, and students, members of our Business Advisory Council and alumni to serve students and advance the School and College. It’s clear from my brief association with the School of Business that the faculty and students are unusually able and that Ms. Theresa Little, Assistant to the Dean, and Ms. Beth Fitzpatrick, Secretary, are terrific colleagues.
The coming spring semester promises to be a busy one highlighted by Career Night (February 26), our spring Networking Banquet in early April, and our annual meeting of the Business Advisory Council and Alumni Connections Council in mid-April. We’ll provide more information on these and other events in weeks to come. In addition, we will continue to pursue a number of ongoing projects that were launched and/or envisioned during the fall semester including faculty recruiting and program review.
My office as well as those of Ms. Little and Ms. Fitzpatrick is located in the School of Business Suite in South Hall 100. Let us know if you have questions or need assistance! All good wishes for a terrific spring semester
