Kellogg Prof. Kathleen Hagerty has been named the interim dean of the Kellogg School of Management, the University announced in a Thursday news release.
Hagerty, who currently serves as the senior associate dean of faculty and research, will begin her new position September 1. She succeeds Sally Blount (Kellogg ’91, ’92), who will step down as dean at the end of this academic year. The search for a permanent dean is ongoing, the release said.
“As a long-time member of the Kellogg faculty, no one knows the school better or has a stronger commitment to our mission than Kathleen,” Blount said in the release. “She is a deep believer in business education and a highly effective leader. I’m confident that she will maintain Kellogg’s upward trajectory and ensure continuity of everything we love about Kellogg.”
Hagerty has been at Kellogg for more than 30 years, the release said, and has held several leadership positions, including serving as the finance department chair and the faculty director of the school’s doctoral programs.
After her time as interim dean, Hagerty will serve as the associate provost for faculty in the Office of the Provost, the release said. She said she is looking forward to building upon Blount’s leadership.
“I’m honored to assume this role and add to the myriad accomplishments of the Kellogg team under Dean Blount’s leadership,” Hagerty said in the release. “I look forward to partnering with faculty colleagues, as well as our staff, students, alumni and broader community, to create knowledge and educate the next generation of business leaders.”
