Dean Salchenberger appointed to provost's office; Professor Eppli named interim dean


July 31, 2012

Dr. Linda M. Salchenberger, who is currently serving as the James H. Keyes dean of the College of Business Administration, has been appointed to a new role as associate provost for academic planning and budgeting effective Aug. 15.

Salchenberger brings extensive experience in budgeting and strategic planning to this new position. She currently co-chairs the university's financial planning committee, worked with the business faculty to develop and implement a three year strategic plan as dean, and has significant consulting experience in the area. In her new role, Salchenberger will report to the provost and work closely with executive vice president, Dr. Mary DiStanislao, to help Marquette align its strategic priorities with its financial and budgetary systems.

"This unique opportunity and the fact that the college is in a strong position makes this the right move at the right time," said Provost John Pauly. "As dean of the College of Business Administration, Linda led a successful accreditation process, formed a high-profile Dean's Council of Excellence, strengthened the college's centers, and revamped the executive MBA program, to name just a few of her accomplishments."

Dr. Mark Eppli, Bell Chair in Real Estate, will serve as the interim dean of the College of Business Administration. A formal search will begin one year from now for a new permanent dean to begin July 1, 2014.
