UC Berkeley announced today that Tom Campbell, the Bank of America Dean of the Haas School of Business, will resign effective July 15, 2008 after completing his five-year term. The former congressman announced no plans following his stepping down. He is committed to spending the next year continuing his efforts to expand the permanent, full-time faculty so Haas can improve its ratio of faculty to students and offer more and a wider variety of courses.
Haas announced two new faculty appointments:
- Nicolae Garleanu from the Wharton School, who will teach the core "Introduction to Finance."
- Terry Taylor from Columbia Graduate School of Business, who is a specialist in SCM, but will not teach this fall.
Haas previously announced the additions of Patricia Dechow in the Haas School Accounting Group, Dmitri Livdan in the Finance Group, and Jo-Ellen Pozner in the Organizational Behavior and Industrial Relations Group (OBIR). Brian Uzzi will also join the OBIR Group in January 2008.
