NCCU's interim business school dean lands permanent slot
After more than a year at the helm of North Carolina Central University's business school as interim dean, Bijoy Sahoo has been appointed to the position on a permanent basis.
NCCU officials named Sahoo to the post following a confirmation by the board of governors of the University of North Carolina System.
Sahoo has served as interim dean of the NCCU School of Business since January 2006. He succeeded Benjamin Newhouse, who was replaced after the business school lost its accreditation in 2005.
Sahoo had been working as assistant vice chancellor for strategic planning and continuous improvement in the Division of Academic Affairs. He said in a written statement that an early task is to fill positions left vacant by retired faculty members or about to become vacant due to those about to retire.
Sahoo also indicated the school will move to expand its facilities under his leadership. He joined the NCCU faculty in September 2004.
