Purdue business school dean to step down

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Richard A. Cosier, dean of Purdue University's Krannert School of Management for the past decade, plans to leave the post June 30, 2010, the university announced today.

Cosier will remain at Purdue as the Leeds Professor of Management, a position he holds in addition to serving as dean.

"It's been an honor to lead our world-class faculty and be a part of the energy and dedication that surrounds Krannert," Cosier said in a prepared statement. "My plan was to do this job for 10 years, and it will be 11 years next summer. It's time. I look forward to returning to the classroom and reconnecting with the students who drive this university."

Cosier joined Purdue in 1999 after working at the University of Oklahoma, Indiana University and the University of Notre Dame. He is the immediate past chair of the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, an international accreditation organization for business schools.

A national search for a new dean will start early this academic year, the school said.
