Cornell appoints interim business dean following abrupt resignation

Following the abrupt resignation of Soumitra Dutta, who was dean of the Cornell SC Johnson College of Business, the university has appointed L. Joseph Thomas as the interim dean.

Thomas, who was dean of the Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management from 2007 to 2012, will lead the college until a permanent dean is appointed.

“I’m honored to be asked to take the helm during this transition for the college, and I am committed to working closely with the college leadership team and all of the talented faculty, staff and students in Johnson, Dyson and the Hotel School to ensure the continued success of all three schools and the college,” Thomas told the Cornell Chronicle, which is published by Cornell's university relations office.
