Announcing the Conclusion of Decanal Service for MSB Dean, Dr. George Daly
September 10, 2010
Dear Members of the Georgetown University Community:
I write to announce that George Daly, Dean of the McDonough School of Business, will be concluding his decanal service at the end of this academic year. Since coming to Georgetown in 2005, Dean Daly’s service to the University has been remarkable, and I can only begin to express my appreciation for his leadership and dedication to the MSB and our entire community.
Under Dean Daly’s leadership, the McDonough School of Business has seen impressive growth and development in a number of areas. The business faculty has grown significantly, and the size of the student body and staff has increased as well. He has enhanced the global character of the School through programs such as the Georgetown-ESADE Global Executive MBA program and strengthened MSB’s ties with the Washington, D.C. business community. Dean Daly also worked tirelessly with many faculty and staff members to ensure the completion of the Hariri Building, a state-of the art facility which houses our undergraduate and graduate business programs.
Upon the conclusion of his deanship, Dean Daly will enjoy a year away to focus on his research interests. The following year he will assume a part-time faculty position in the McDonough School of Business.
Provost James J. O’Donnell and I will work in the coming weeks to organize a formal search process for Dean Daly’s successor, and we look forward to keeping you informed of those developments.
I am truly grateful for Dean Daly’s service to the McDonough School of Business and our entire community. I look forward to being together with many of you in the months ahead as we find ways to celebrate and thank him for his many contributions to Georgetown.
You have my very best wishes.
John J. DeGioia
