Crespy Resigns as Dean of UNM’s Anderson School

February 22, 2007

University of New Mexico Provost and Executive Vice President of Academic Affairs Reed Way Dasenbrock has announced the resignation of Charles Crespy as dean of the Anderson Schools of Management, effective immediately. Crespy will return to the Anderson Schools faculty and will begin teaching in the fall.

Dasenbrock has appointed Amy Wohlert, vice provost for Graduate Education and dean of Graduate Studies, as the interim dean of Anderson Schools.

Dasenbrock said Crespy’s resignation was accepted with regret. “Chuck’s tenure as dean of Anderson Schools has been marked by significant accomplishments that include re-accreditation, the successful student-managed investment portfolio and the soon-to-be opened financial services center. We look to build on all of these successes as we do a national search for the new dean.”

Dasenbrock and Acting UNM President David Harris credit Crespy with forging closer ties to the business community and said those relationships will continue to be nurtured. “UNM’s Regents have made relevance to New Mexico business and to economic development a priority,” said Harris. “The Anderson Schools will continue to be an important partner in that ongoing relationship.”
