I thought I was going fishing. But when I was approached to lead the college that has been a part of my life since 1980, I was all in. The fish can wait. On September 16, I officially assumed the role of interim dean, with a planned conclusion in June 2016. It's an undeniably exciting time in higher education, and the University of Oregon and Lundquist College of Business are each exceptionally well-positioned to lead this unprecedented education revolution. We have already achieved so much in recent months and over the past few years, and I plan to continue the great momentum the Lundquist College is enjoying. As such, I would like to thank Kees de Kluyver for truly laying the groundwork for this incredible time in the history of the college. If you have had the pleasure of being around Kees, you know he is irreplaceable. The search has begun, however, for his successor. During this interim period we are working toward three main goals for the college: • Hire a great dean • Successfully complete reaccreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, the gold standard for business school accreditation worldwide • Continue to raise money to enhance our research and teaching. Our students, staff, and faculty work hard and do amazing things. Our donors and alumni make it possible. This magazine showcases what we can achieve together. You are our heroes. Thank you.
