Fort Lewis College Provost Dr. Barbara Morris has announced that Dr. Paul McGurr will serve as interim dean for the FLC School of Business Administration. Dr. McGurr takes over for Dr. Doug Lyon, who served as dean since 2011. Dr. Lyon moved to the College’s Office of Advancement, where he works in corporate and community relations.

This is a homecoming for Dr. McGurr, who worked at Fort Lewis College from 2004-2011. He taught a variety of business courses as an associate professor, as well as serving as assistant dean of the school.

After leaving FLC, he worked at Jönköping International Business School in Sweden, where he served as chair of the Department of Accounting and Law and associate dean of education. In addition, he earned the student-chosen Pedagogical Prize as best teacher of 2012. He then joined Bristol University in California, where he served as president for one year and currently teaches online.

Outside of academics, Dr. McGurr has held several senior level financial positions with private sector companies, including working as a manager in the U.S. and the Netherlands for Ernst & Whinney, a professional services company.

“I am excited to return to Fort Lewis College, the School of Business Administration and Durango”, says Dr. McGurr. “SOBA is a quality business school as shown by its 40-year continuous accreditation by AACSB. I look forward to leading the team of faculty, many of whom I have previously worked with, in the quest for continued improvement in our programs. My goal is to build on our strengths to ensure that our graduates are ready to face challenges in the ever more complicated business environment of today and the future.”

What does diversity mean at Fort Lewis College?

Fort Lewis College stands by its commitment to self-determination, expression, and sovereignty for all students, faculty, and staff. I believe that we walk best when we walk together, and many eyes make a stronger vision.
