New Business Dean Named

Rajib Sanyal is the new dean of the Walker L. Cisler College of Business. His appointment is effective July 1.

Sanyal has served as a professor of management in the School of Business at The College of New Jersey formerly Trenton State since 1987. He also spent four years as division head. In that capacity, he was responsible for administering academic majors in accounting, economics, finance and international business with 19 full-time and six part-time faculty.

"I am excited at the opportunity to lead Northern's business college," Sanyal said. "It is well situated to serve as a key driver of economic development in the region. The college's human and intellectual resources offer the promise of building on its record of positively changing the lives of students and the lives of the citizens in the community. It is this promise, I should say, that attracts me to Northern."

Sanyal was selected for an American Council on Education Fellowship for the 2004-05 academic year, which he is completing at George Mason University in Fairfax, Va.
