Dr. Chester (Chet) Haskell has been appointed as dean of Alliant International University's Marshall Goldsmith School of Management & Leadership.
"Getting someone with Chet's background is a huge plus for Alliant, particularly at a time when considerable work is underway to sharpen the strategic focus of the Management School," said Provost Russ Newman.

Dr. Haskell comes to Alliant with more than 30 years of experience in all aspects of higher education administration and leadership. During his 13 year tenure at Harvard University he held a variety of high level administrative positions, including many in the international arena. Dr. Haskell was also president at the Monterey Institute of International Studies, and most recently, served as president of Cogswell Polytechnical College. Across all of his assignments, Dr. Haskell made it a point to also serve on the faculty and will continue to do so at Alliant.
"Not only is Chet an experienced administrator, his work with international programs in Europe, Asia, and Latin America will help us further the international component of our mission," President Geoff Cox said.

Dr. Haskell also intends to make Alliant a strong force in the local San Diego business community. "Internships, consulting assignments, volunteer opportunities, and capstone projects are just a few of the ways Alliant will continue strengthening its partnership with the business community. As part of a non-profit university, the Management School has the responsibility to provide the community with well-prepared managers and business leaders that can make a difference both locally and internationally," says Dr. Haskell.

Dr. Haskell earned his master's and doctoral degrees in public administration from the University of Southern California, and his bachelor's degree from Harvard University.

Dr. Haskell will assume his new role beginning August 15, 2011 and will be located at Alliant's San Diego campus.
