Fox and STHM dean appointment

To the Temple University community: 

We are very pleased to announce that Ronald C. Anderson has been appointed dean of the Fox School of Business and the School of Sport, Tourism and Hospitality Management, effective July 1. He has served as interim dean of both schools since July 23, 2018. 

In that time, Ron has displayed exceptional leadership ability in shepherding the schools through a transitional period. He has created a culture of openness and communication that has been felt throughout Fox and STHM. Over the last year, we have received strong positive feedback about Ron from Fox and STHM faculty, students and alumni. As a valued member of the Fox School’s faculty since 2012 and former chair of the school’s Department of Finance for several years, he has the background and experience to lead the school into the future. 

Ron knows what an asset this university has at Fox, one of the nation’s premier business schools. It is also one of Temple’s top schools, and its largest. Fox continues to provide a career-focused and student-centered curriculum that prepares its students for successful futures. The school is home to award-winning faculty who produce impactful research and lead industry-focused courses. Similarly, STHM is steeped in more than 20 years of tradition, and has a distinguished reputation as the city’s largest provider of talented graduates in sport, recreation, hospitality, and tourism management. 

Please join us in congratulating Dean Anderson on his appointment. We know he will continue to have the support of the students, faculty and staff at Fox and STHM, along with the rest of our university community.
