New dean chosen for PSUC School of Business, Economics

The Plattsburgh State School of Business and Economics will welcome Rowena Ortiz-Walters as its new dean this summer.

Ortiz-Walters, who currently serves as the chair of management in the School of Business and Engineering at Quinnipiac University, located in Hamden, Connecticut, accepted the position March 30 and said she is looking forward to joining the PSUC community.

“Many aspects of the school are attractive to me, including a strong faculty with terminal degrees, a strong international and first-generation student presence and an investment in new facilities,” she said in a PSUC press release. “This is an exciting time in the history of the school, and I look forward to supporting its success as the next dean.”

The national search was headed by PSUC Dean of Library and Information Technology Service Holly Heller-Ross.

“Dr. Ortiz-Walters is a perfect choice to lead our School of Business and Economics,” said James Liszka, PSUC provost and vice president of academic affairs. “Her qualities as administrator and scholar, and her outreach to communities, are sure to benefit SBE and our Plattsburgh businesses and organizations.”
