Southern Illinois University Edwardsville Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs Denise Cobb, PhD, has named Tim Schoenecker, PhD, as dean of the School of Business. Schoenecker has served as interim dean since May 2016. The appointment is subject to SIU board approval.
Under Schoenecker’s leadership, the school has progressed its strategic plan by boosting enrollment, continuing its tradition of internships and global engagement, building faculty resources and maintaining its momentum in development and alumni relations. In March, the school recognized record donor support with scholarships worth more than $200,000 presented at its annual scholarships and awards program.
Under Schoenecker, the school celebrated its accounting and business programs’ 2017 reaccreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.
“Tim has been a campus leader in a variety of roles throughout his productive career at SIUE, from University Planning and Budget Council chair to University Congress leadership to successful stints as associate dean, acting dean and interim dean of the School of Business,” Cobb said.
