Greg Mosier, Regents Service Professor and Puterbaugh Professor of Ethics and Legal Studies in Business at Oklahoma State University has been named dean of the College of Business Administration.

Mosier previously served as interim dean of the Spears School of Business and associate dean at Oklahoma State University.

Mosier, 50, will take over Aug. 1 from interim dean Dana Edberg, who filled the role since August 2006, after previous Dean Mike Reed was named vice chancellor of finance and administration for the Nevada System of Higher Education.

"We are extraordinarily pleased that Greg will join us as dean of the College of Business Administration. He brings a strong record of leadership and demonstrates a particularly strong understanding of how the College of Business relates to the regional business community and the community at-large," said University President Milt Glick.

"We had a very strong pool of candidates, and every group of constituents that interviewed them concurred that Greg stood out."

"Nevada's College of Business Administration is positioned to move to the next level," said Mosier.

"I am impressed by the college's balanced mission of instruction and scholarship with a strong focus on student success. The faculty are outstanding. They are devoted to their teaching and research, and they also express a desire to grow the college's strong record of community outreach and involvement in the region's economic development."

Mosier served as interim dean of the Spears School from August 2004 through July 2006. In this role, Mosier was responsible for 100 tenure-track faculty, 130 instructors and staff and approximately 4,700 students at the undergraduate, master's and doctorate levels.

Mosier received the OSU Regents Distinguished Teaching Award in 2003 and was named Professor of the Year in 2003 by the MBA Student Association.

He was recognized as the Outstanding MBA Faculty member for 1999, served as Regents Service Professor from 1997 to 2001, and was coordinator of the College Scholar Leader Program. In 2006 he was named to an endowed professor position in the Spears School of Business.

Mosier holds a bachelor's degree in secondary biology education from OSU, a juris doctorate from the University of Kansas and a doctorate in higher education administration from OSU. He is a former corporate attorney, having worked for the Parker Drilling Company in Texas. Mosier is a member of the State Bars of Kansas, Texas and Oklahoma.

"I have specialized in legal studies in business, especially employment law and international business, for a number of years," said Mosier, currently a faculty member at the Spears School. "This past year I have begun to focus much of my research toward legal issues related to the use of technology."

Mosier is the author or co-author of more than 20 publications, two commercial publications and numerous book reviews.
