Remembering Ron Green, Ph.D., former dean of The Citadel’s business school

Ron Green, Ph.D., served as the dean of the School of Business Administration — now called the Tommy and Victoria Baker School of Business — from 2007 to 2013. During his 13-year tenure at The Citadel, he taught graduate and undergraduate level courses in strategic management, health care management, operations management, and decision science. In addition, Green served as interim dean in 2017-18. He retired in 2020.

“Ron Green loved the Baker School of Business and served its faculty and students with distinction for many years,” said Michael R. Weeks, Ph.D., dean of the Baker School of Business. “He was instrumental in planning for our new business building and many curriculum improvements implemented over the past few years. We will greatly miss his smile and his enthusiasm for our community.”
