THE SANTA CLARA
January 16, 2014
Carolyn Evans has filled the vacant position of senior assistant dean of graduate business programs at the Leavey School of Business.
“(Evans) will be leading our efforts in student services, academic advising and career management for our graduate business programs,” said Drew Starbird, dean of the Leavey School of Business. “She will also be designing new programs to meet the needs of the students and executing our new strategic plan.”
Evans has already begun collecting information about graduate student education in order to kickstart her role as senior assistant dean.
“On the evening of Jan. 14, we had an open forum with graduate students about their experiences, so she has already started collecting information that can be used to develop new programs that will add to student satisfaction and improve their educational and learning experience,” Starbird said.
Evans not only has experience in academia, but also was an economic advisor to the federal government. Starbird believes that this wealth of experience will translate well into her position at the business school.
“She brings a great understanding of graduate business education, experience in the classroom and experience with industry,” Starbird said. “All of those things are important with our programs in the business school.”
Evans will officially take the reigns in her new position as senior assistant dean on Feb. 10.
