Richard Klimoski, professor in the Psychology Department and director of the Center for Behavioral and Cognitive Studies, has been appointed the interim dean of the School of Management. Klimoski is also currently the associate dean in the College of Arts and Sciences and director of the Applied Experimental Area Program in Psychology. As of July 1, he will devote himself full-time to the School of Management.

Klimoski joined the George Mason faculty in 1995.

“I am grateful to professor Klimoski for his commitment to helping guide a fruitful transition for the School of Management,” says Provost Peter Stearns. “Rich has extensive teaching and research interests in management issues as well as a wealth of successful administrative experience in psychology and management in the College of Arts and Sciences.”

Klimoski has worked with a wide variety of organizations dealing with such issues as human resource management systems, job-related stress, and quality of work life. His teaching and research interests revolve around the areas of organizational control systems in the form of performance appraisal and performance feedback programs and team performance.

“It’s an exciting opportunity,” says Klimoski. “I believe in George Mason and the value of having a School of Management as it contributes to the future of George Mason. I look forward to working with the faculty to help move the school to the next phase of its life.”
