Brian F. O'Neil has accepted the appointment of associate dean and director of Graduate Business Programs in the College of Business at Rochester Institute of Technology. He will begin his duties effective June 1.

O'Neil currently works as associate dean at Clarkson University School of Business in Potsdam, N.Y.—where he has served as professor of operations and production management since 1985. During his notable career at Clarkson, O'Neil also served as director of graduate programs and chair of the department of management.

Upon O'Neil's arrival at RIT, a senior management reorganization will take effect within the College of Business. Wayne Morse, currently associate dean, will become senior associate dean and chair of the department of accounting and finance. Donald Wilson, currently director of graduate business programs, will return to a full-time faculty position in the department of management and marketing. Wilson's past contributions and responsibilities include a distinguished eight-year term as graduate programs director.

O'Neil comes to RIT with an accomplished record in teaching, student advising and student life contributions. His professional activities have also extended abroad, where he taught numerous management development programs in North and South America as well as Europe. His research interests include applied quantitative methods in operations management and logistics/supply chain systems, and he has published widely in these areas.

Prior to Clarkson, O'Neil was on the faculty at Indiana University and University of Miami. He received his BS in industrial engineering at Syracuse University and his MS and Ph.D. degrees in industrial administration from Purdue University.
