Great Oaks Foundation Professorships Awarded to Three FCBE Faculty Members
The Great Oaks Foundation recently awarded three professorships to deserving Fogelman College faculty members. Drs. Chuck Pierce, Bill Smith and Marla Stafford were selected as the recipients of these prestigious awards because of their continued commitment to academic research and their leadership in the College and the community.
A representative of the Great Oaks Foundation said, “We are pleased to support the University and the Fogelman College of Business and Economics with these professorships for faculty members because they exhibit excellence in both research and community engagement.”
Dr. Chuck Pierce is the chairman and a professor of the Department of Management; Dr. Bill Smith is the chairman and a professor of the Department of Economics; and, Dr. Marla Stafford is the chairman and a professor of the Department of Marketing and Supply Chain Management. Their direction and leadership has positively affected their respective departments, but has also tremendously enhanced the College as a whole.
“It is critically important that we recognize and award leaders of the Fogelman faculty who exceed typical expectations and actively strive to improve the College. This also encourages others to step up to administrative and leadership roles,” said Dr. Rajiv Grover, Dean of Fogelman College of Business and Economics. “Drs. Pierce, Smith and Stafford are outstanding members of the Fogelman College family and are most deserving of these prestigious professorships.”
The honored faculty members will receive monetary compensation of $10,000 annually for five years.
“I am sincerely appreciative to the Great Oaks Foundation for awarding me a professorship in management; it is an incredible personal and professional honor,” said Dr. Charles Pierce. “It is also humbling to be recognized alongside such esteemed colleagues. Thank you.”
