Message From the Interim Provost

Successful Search for the College of Business!


After a national search that began in January, I'm delighted to announce that Dr. Toni Phillips has been appointed Dean of the College of Business, pending approval by the University of Louisiana System Board of Supervisors.
Dr. Phillips is a familiar face on campus.  She holds a Ph.D. from Louisiana State University and has been a faculty member at Southeastern since 1990, currently at the rank of Professor.  She has served in a variety of roles in the college including interim department head, assistant dean and has served as interim dean of the College of Business since 2014.  In each of these roles, Dr. Phillips has garnered the respect of her peers, supervisors and all who have worked with her.  
I would like to thank members of the search committee. This committee included department heads, faculty, students and a community leader and was chaired by the Dean of the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences. A successful search is not possible without committee members who are truly dedicated to the process.
Congratulations, Dr. Phillips and thank you for your continued commitment to Southeastern!
