â€œI have been impressed with the way that opportunities to develop leadership skills are ingrained in everything that cadets do. That is one thing that particularly attracted me to The Citadel,â€ said Green, a South Carolina native. â€œHaving grown up in the Lowcountry, Iâ€™ve watched the evolution of the college. The Citadel has made great strides and the business school is moving in a very positive direction.â€
Green, who has served as dean and professor of management at Indiana State since 2002, announced last fall that he intended to resign as dean. He will begin his new position at The Citadel on July 1.
â€œI have enjoyed the last five years at Indiana State. It has been a very successful period for the college of business and I take great pride in that. It will be difficult to leave all of the close friends that Iâ€™ve developed, not only within the university but also in the community. However, the opportunity to return home and serve a fine institution such as The Citadel is one that would be very difficult to pass up,â€ Green said.
â€œI am very happy for Dean Green,â€ said C. Jack Maynard, ISU provost and vice president for academic affairs. â€œThe Citadel has selected an excellent dean, professor, and person to lead their college. They are to be commended for their selection. Personally, I will miss Dean Green, but I am very happy for him. South Carolina is his home and to have the opportunity to lead an excellent college and return home is something that many of us would cherish.â€
Green earned his doctoral degree from Clemson University, his masterâ€™s of public administration and masterâ€™s of business administration from Jacksonville State University and his bachelorâ€™s degree from Clemson.
