To the George Washington community:
I am writing to inform you that Doug Guthrie is no longer serving as the dean of the School of Business. Fundamental differences about financial and operational performance were significant enough to warrant a change in leadership.
I wish to thank Dr. Guthrie for his contributions as dean, including hiring talented faculty, attracting students with stellar records from around the world and launching innovative programs. The university will shortly identify an interim dean who will lead the school while a national search is conducted. In the meantime, Vice Dean Philip Wirtz will handle the day-to-day operations of the School of Business.
