The Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth has named Matthew J. Slaughter as the school’s 10th dean, Dartmouth announced Thursday.
A scholar of international economics and an expert in globalization, Slaughter is a renowned academic who has held several key leadership roles at Tuck since joining the faculty in 2002. He will assume his new role on July 1.
“Matt embodies all that is great about Tuck. He is a committed scholar-educator with a global outlook and deep connections to the worlds of policy and practice,” said Dartmouth President Phil Hanlon, who also noted that Slaughter is devoted to the school’s values and traditions, its close-knit community, spirit of innovation, and culture of diversity.
Currently Signal Companies’ Professor of Management, associate dean for faculty, and founding faculty director of Tuck’s Center for Global Business and Government, Slaughter previously served as associate dean of the MBA program. From 2005 to 2007, he served on the Council of Economic Advisers in the Executive Office of the President of the United States.
Slaughter succeeds Dean Paul Danos, who announced in March he would not seek reappointment at the end of his fifth term in June 2015.
“I am delighted Matt will become our new dean,” Dano said. “Matt is a superb scholar and a gifted teacher, and Tuck is indeed fortunate to welcome a leader of his accomplishments and thorough knowledge and appreciation of Tuck’s traditions and operations. I have every confidence Matt will lead Tuck to new levels of excellence and distinction.”
