Tom Campbell, dean of the Haas School of Business at the University of California, Berkeley, is to stand down from the position next summer, after completing his term of office.
Prof Campbell, a career academic, became the school’s 13th dean in August 2002. During his stewardship the school’s endowment fund has grown 87 per cent and currently stands at $194m. He has also been instrumental in implementing a strategic plan for the school that includes new building and fund raising for facutly research.
Over the coming year Prof Campbell plans to expand Haas’ permanent, full-time faculty and offer a wider portfolio of courses. He also plans to ensure the school’s teaching of ethics in business is embedded into the curriculum.
Haas will now begin the search for a new dean.
