Anderson School of Management Dean Search

University of New Mexico Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs James Holloway has named Mitzi Montoya as dean of the Anderson School of Management effective July 1, 2020.

Montoya, who comes to UNM from Washington State University, fills the position held on an interim basis by Shawn Berman since January 2019 following former dean, Craig White, who stepped down to take on the interim role of Senior Vice President for Finance and Administration at UNM.

Montoya looks forward to her new role at UNM including the opportunities the institution provides as one of only a dozen Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs) in the U.S. that are also classified by the Carnegie Commission on Higher Education as a R1: Doctoral Universities with very high research activity.

“I'm very excited about both the strengths of the university and the Anderson School,” said Montoya. “I love UNM’s strong focus on academic excellence coupled with the state’s rich cultural history and diversity. These combined strengths create tremendous potential for the Anderson School of Management to play a leadership role nationally.”
