Craig White

Interim dean no more at Anderson

After serving as interim dean for the Anderson School of Management for over a year, Craig White has been appointed by University Provost Chaouki Abdallah to remain in the seat for the next three years in order to “continue the positive momentum of the School,” UNM announced Tuesday afternoon.

Abdallah, who, according to the Office of the Provost’s website, is responsible for all aspects of instruction and academic personnel at UNM, said in the release that he was “extraordinarily pleased” with how White has handled the position since the retirement of former dean, Douglas Brown.

“He earned a great deal of support from the Anderson faculty and staff, and…he has agreed to stay on for an additional three years so that the initiatives underway can be realized,” Abdallah said in the release. “Of great importance is maintaining their positive accreditation status as well as planning and construction of the first phase of their new building.”

That project is expected to be completed in early 2018.

Anderson School of Management was the fifth-biggest department in the fall of 2014 in terms of students, according to University data, with just under 11 percent of UNM students, undergraduate and graduate alike, enrolled. That’s just behind University College (11.37 percent), the School of Engineering (11.27 percent) and the College of Education (11.27 percent).

White said in the release that it has been a privilege to work with the faculty and staff of Anderson in his tenure as interim dean, and he looks forward to continuing that collaboration.

“I am very excited to have the opportunity to now serve as dean as we continue to focus on our core mission of management research, education and community service,” he said in the statement.

White’s areas of expertise are tax policy, tax research and accounting data analytics, and he has taught courses on topics related to taxation as well as business ethics, according to
