from the dean

To be sure, the bricks and mortar associated with the Carlson School of Management are extraordinary. But at the heart of the Carlson School—at the foundation of its greatness both now and into the future—are the remarkable strengths and contributions of its world-class faculty.
        Today, more than 50,000 Carlson School graduates share poignant classroom memories—memories shaped by faculty members whose job it was to teach, to inspire, and to lead by example. That tradition of teaching excellence continues today throughout the school. In the main feature story in this issue of Carlson School, you’ll learn about some of the current “classroom stars.” As you read, you’ll quite possibly think back to a Carlson School faculty member who left a lasting impression on you.
        We are, indeed, proud of our faculty’s capacity to share their wisdom in the classroom. At the same time, we are equally proud of their abilities to discover new possibilities for the future through innovative research. Built upon a long-standing reputation for creating new knowledge and solving business challenges, the Carlson School is recognized worldwide as a center for high-quality, groundbreaking business research. Most people are familiar with the school’s history of transformative creations such as the field of information systems and the development of the “Four Ps” of marketing. In the pages that follow, you’ll learn about a variety of new ways our faculty is continuing that great tradition of breakthrough research.
        Attracting and retaining top faculty has been a focus that has shaped our past. It is a focus that also will define our future. In this issue of the magazine, I encourage you to read about our recent addition of 11 new tenured and tenure-track faculty. Such exciting news comes on top of the eight appointments to new endowed professorships and the two appointments to new endowed chairs—all of which were made possible by generous gifts to the school from alumni and friends. With these changes, the Carlson School now has 111 tenured and tenure-track faculty, 33 full-time instructional faculty, and a total of 35 endowed chairs and professorships. Importantly, as our school’s student body continues to increase in size and the impact of our research continues to grow, recruiting and retaining faculty will remain the Carlson School’s highest strategic priority.
        The Scottish philosopher Dugald Stewart once wrote, “The faculty of imagination is the great spring of human activity and the principal source of human improvement.” In a nutshell, we view the faculty of the Carlson School of Management in precisely the same way.
        I truly hope you enjoy this issue of Carlson School. As always, we look forward to receiving your comments.
Alison Davis-Blake, Dean
Investors in Leadership Distinguished Chair in Organizational Behavior
