Provost’s Message: Dr. Justo Manrique Named Acting Dean for Marilyn Davies College of Business

Dear UHD Community,

In consultation with incoming Marilyn Davies College of Business Dean, Dr. Charles E. Gengler, the President and I are naming Dr. Justo Manrique as Acting Dean of the Marilyn Davies College of Business. Dr. Manrique will serve in this role from June 1 through July 23, when Dr. Gengler will assume leadership of the College.

Dr. Manrique—currently, the College’s Associate Dean of Undergraduate Studies—will have two priorities in this role. He will focus on the College increasing its undergraduate enrollment this summer and fall. He also will support the College’s preparation efforts for its reaccreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). Working with Dr. Manrique, Dr. Whitney Botsford Morgan, Associate Professor, will lead the College’s reaccreditation process.

Dr. Manrique is a veteran administrator, who has served as Department Chair and Associate Dean. His experience and institutional knowledge are an asset to the College. We ask that faculty and staff of the College provide Dr. Manrique and Dr. Morgan with the necessary assistance they will need this summer to achieve the College’s enrollment and accreditation goals.

We would like to thank both Dr. Manrique and Dr. Morgan for accepting these leadership roles in the College and encourage everyone to support them in their efforts.
