Wake Forest forms search committee for Dean of the School of Business
Wake Forest University has formed a search committee for its next Dean of the School of Business, succeeding Charles Iacovou, who was named Dean of the School of Professional Studies last December; Michelle Roehm has served as Interim Dean since January 2021.
The search committee, chaired by Provost Rogan Kersh, will have its inaugural meeting next week. “This signal transition in a vital Wake Forest institution comes at a time of historic change across our University and is, therefore, all the more pivotal,” said Kersh. “As we see ever-closer collaboration among our deans and other academic leaders, all of Wake Forest will be enhanced by this search committee’s meticulous work.” Read more

Bern Beatty, retired professor of business, passes away
We are saddened to share that Bernard Lee “Bern” Beatty, retired associate professor of management in the business school, passed away on August 4. He was 92 years old.
Beatty taught accounting, management and case writing for 42 years, from 1974 to 2016; he was recognized as a Babcock Educator of the Year six times between 1975 and 2003.
For several years of his Wake Forest career, Professor Beatty awarded the prestigious Bern Beatty Scholarship, an annual full-expenses two-year scholarship, to support exceptional business school students; this endowed scholarship continues to be awarded annually in his honor. The Bern Beatty Faculty Fellowship for outstanding business professors was established by alumni to recognize his teaching and mentorship.
