    Let me begin by saying that it is both a personal pleasure and a professional privilege for me to serve as Dean of the Leon Hess Business School. I have had the opportunity to serve the school as a full time faculty member since 1979, and it has been and continues to be a very pleasant and satisfying experience.

    Monmouth University's Leon Hess Business School is uniquely situated to make rapid strides in this millennium. It has a multitude of assets. First and foremost of these is an excellent faculty. A blend of experienced academics and new hires, individuals with extensive academic and professional experience, the faculty is first of all highly devoted to teaching. A review of the Student Instructional Reports is clear evidence of faculty who meet or exceed national norms for teaching effectiveness. Our faculty teaching does not start and stop at the classroom door, it continues into the halls,faculty offices, and lunchrooms and even on occasion into the parking lot. Close personal interaction with the faculty is a hallmark of the education at Monmouth University's Leon Hess Business School.

    Despite this emphasis on teaching, most of the faculty have also established themselves as important scholars in their respective fields. Their work has been published in a number of major journals, the proceedings of national and international conferences, books and other outlets.

    Students are also exposed throughout the year to a variety of "real world" experts. Notable among these are the Fall Finance Symposium, the H.R. Young Lecture Series, the Accounting Club Speakers Series, the Finance Club Speaker Series, the S.B. Siegel Lecture Series, etc. Through our bi-annual Stakeholders Conference students, alumni, faculty and members of the business community spend a considerable time reassessing the Leon Hess Business School, where it is and where it should be going.

    Through the Kislak Institute and the Monmouth University Center for Entrepreneurship students are able to gain valuable real world experiences and knowledge. By participating in the Mentoring Program, applying for the myriad of business Scholarships and Awards, being recognized through induction into Beta Gamma Sigma, exploring the co-location agreement with the International Trade Administration Office in Bey Hall, or participating in Experiential Education or Study Abroad you are exposed to opportunities that are both broad and enriching.

    As the Dean of the School I look forward to working with you as we pursue a vigorous program of new initiatives and new development for the Leon Hess Business School. If you have any questions, concerns or issues you would like to discuss, please feel free to contact me or come visit us.
