Dean of Paul College to Return to Research and Teaching

Monday, September 16, 2013

Dan Innis, dean of the Peter T. Paul College of Business and Economics, has informed university administrators that he will step down as dean Nov. 1, 2013.  A professor of marketing, Innis came to UNH in 2007. During his tenure as dean he helped secure the college’s largest ever gift of $25 million and oversaw the building and opening of a new business school, the Peter T. Paul College of Business and Economics. 

“The new business college is already transforming the university’s graduate and undergraduate business education,” said Provost Lisa MacFarlane. “It is a giant step forward for our students, allowing us to expand our capacity in business programs from 1,700 to 2,500 students.  Dean Innis was an integral part of making it happen. We are grateful for his commitment to our students and for his six years of service.”  

Innis will be returning to the Paul College faculty to reengage his research and teaching.  

MacFarlane will initiate a national search for a new dean
