Dean Updates

Admissions--Andrew Flagel is the new dean of admissions and enrollment development at George Mason. He began his position in mid-July, coming from the University of Michigan-Flint, where he served for more than four years.

As admissions director at the University of Michigan-Flint, Flagel enrolled the three largest freshman classes in the history of the institution while maintaining their quality. He also has developed models to predict and analyze enrollment trends; created student, faculty, and alumni volunteer programs; and streamlined the university's application review and filing process, which reduced the support staff's workload by 40 percent.

Flagel also has served as director of enrollment management for the Congressional Youth Leadership Council and regional director of admissions for George Washington University. He earned his bachelor's and master's degrees from George Washington and is completing his doctoral degree at Michigan State University.

Flagel replaces Marcelle Heerschap, who left George Mason at the end of June to accompany her husband to Pretoria, South Africa, on his two-year tour with the U.S. State Department.

School of Management--Richard Klimoski, professor in the Psychology Department and director of the Center for Behavioral and Cognitive Studies, has been appointed the interim dean of the School of Management.

Klimoski has worked with a wide variety of organizations, dealing with such issues as human resource management systems, job-related stress, and quality of work life. His teaching and research interests revolve around organizational control systems in the form of performance appraisal and feedback programs and team performance.

Klimoski joined the George Mason faculty in 1995. He replaces Teresa Domzal, who will return to the faculty after a period of administrative leave.
