After consultation with faculty and staff in the Anderson School of Management, and with the appropriate university officials, Provost Chaouki Abdallah has announced Craig White as dean for the next three years to continue the positive momentum of the School. White has served as interim dean since July 2014.

“Dr. White successfully stepped into the leadership position after the retirement of the former dean, Douglas Brown," said Abdallah. "I am extraordinarily pleased that during his tenure, he earned a great deal of support from the Anderson faculty and staff, and that he has agreed to stay on for an additional three years so that the initiatives underway can be realized. Of great importance is maintaining their positive accreditation status as well as planning and construction of the first phase of their new building."

White’s teaching and research specialization is in the area of federal income taxation. He holds both a Ph.D. and Master’s degree in Accounting from Texas Tech University and a BBA from Texas A&M University.

“It has been a privilege working with the Anderson School’s faculty and staff over the past 14 months as interim dean," said White. "I am very excited to have the opportunity to now serve as dean as we continue to focus on our core mission of management research, education, and community service."

White’s research interests include the effect of tax incentives on business decision making, ownership of intellectual property, and business startups commercializing new technologies. His work has been published in a variety of academic and professional journals. White’s consulting work has focused on helping organizations use data to improve business decision making and to efficiently comply with accounting reporting requirements.
