Ames, Iowa — Joey George, the John D. DeVries Endowed Chair in Business and a professor of information systems, has been named associate dean for research at the Ivy College of Business.
“I’m excited about this new opportunity,” George said. “My goal is to help provide faculty and doctoral students with the resources they need to be successful researchers, which in turn improves the quality of the college’s research overall.”
Known for his research in the area of online deception, George has been with the college since 2011. He has served as the director of the Ivy PhD program since 2013 and interim academic director of the college’s Business NeuroLab since 2015.
In this new role, George will continue to oversee the doctoral program and the college’s research labs. In addition, he will help faculty find and secure external funding, manage academic personnel policies, oversee faculty orientation and mentoring, act as the college’s data steward, oversee the college’s information technology efforts, and manage the college’s strategic plan.
“I cannot think of a more qualified person to lead these important efforts for the college,” said Raisbeck Endowed Dean David Spalding. “Joey is an extremely talented professor who is highly respected around the world. He has 32 years of experience at four different universities. He has served as a department chair and president of his discipline’s professional association. He is experienced in leading doctoral programs, international conferences, and academic journals. I look forward to working with Joey in this new capacity.”
