A new face is coming to Texas Christian University’s Neely School of Business after a new dean was named on Tuesday.

Dr. Craig Crossland is set to join TCU on June 30 as the John V. Roach Dean of the Neeley School of Business following an international search. He formerly served as senior associate dean for academic programs at the University of Notre Dame’s Mendoza College of Business,

“The impressive experience and success Dr. Crossland had as a senior associate dean of the Mendoza College of Business is a winning match for TCU and the Neeley School of Business,” said Floyd L. Wormley, interim provost, in a March 19 press release.

“His leadership and vision will enhance TCU Neeley’s already notable reputation for excellence in business education and innovation. Under his guidance, our business school will continue to grow as a model for student success and academic excellence locally, nationally, and internationally.”

Crossland has served as associate editor of the Strategic Management Journal and currently serves as the director, treasurer, and officer of the Strategic Management Society. He earned a Ph.D. from Pennsylvania State University, an MBA from the University College Dublin (Ireland), and a bachelor of physiotherapy from the University of Queensland (Australia).

“Texas Christian University is proud to welcome Dr. Craig Crossland as the new John V. Roach Dean of the Neeley School of Business,” said Daniel W. Pullin, president of TCU. “[Crossland’s] innovative mindset and proven leadership at one of the top business schools in the country will enhance and accelerate TCU Neeley’s already growing stature among the top 50 undergraduate and graduate schools nationally. With Crossland joining our amazing team of academic deans, we eagerly anticipate reaching greater achievements together.”

Crossland said he is excited to join TCU.

“I’m deeply honored to serve as the next John V. Roach Dean of the Neeley School of Business and want to extend my sincere thanks to President Pullin, Interim Provost Wormley, and the entire TCU community for this wonderful opportunity. It was clear from the beginning of the interview process what a special place TCU is, how strongly people identify with this outstanding university and the extent of the positive momentum already in place,” said Crossland.

“In my new role, I look forward to working with Neeley students, staff, and faculty to provide an integrated, world-class student experience, enhance the school’s reputation for research excellence, build new collaborations across campus and with the business community, and further strengthen the Neeley School’s renowned culture of inclusive excellence.”
