Dean's Council


Dr. Hasan Pirkul
Dean and Caruth Chair of
Management

Thank you for your interest in the School of Management Dean’s Council. The Dean’s Council provides a critical link between the students in the School of Management and the School’s administration. The monthly meetings are an important venue where myself, as well as the other deans can share significant school information with council members. The council meetings also serve as a portal where students can share vital and timely feedback to the school’s administration.

Membership in the council is considered a high honor and only students who are willing to make the commitment to serve the school should consider applying for membership in this organization. To belong, members must have obtained a certain grade point average and must have earned the recommendation of a faculty member.

I value the contributions of this organization. The actions taken by the council serve to enhance our school and our program’s reputations. We have high expectations for this council, and I look forward to continuing to share in the success of the Council’s efforts.

The JSOM “OWLIE” award acknowledges the accomplishments and achievements of individuals whose exemplary endeavors have enriched the Jindal School of Management.

Please support JSOM Dean’s Council’s effort to recognize our exceptional students, staff and faculty.
