Christine RiordanDear Daniels Community,

Earlier this month, I shared the news that I was selected to be the next Provost for the University of Kentucky (UK). While accepting this new position is an exciting step in my life, I am sad to be leaving Daniels.  The Daniels students, alumni, faculty, staff, corporate partners and friends are warm and inviting and I will truly miss being a part of this great community.

I will transition to UK mid-summer. Provost Kvistad and Chancellor Coombe are committed to staying the course that we are on for our Daniels Tomorrow strategic plan, and we are currently working out a solid transition plan. I have great faith in the Daniels team and I know impressive things will continue to happen here!

Thank you for the privilege of working with you for the last five years.


All the best,


Christine Riordan, PhD
Dean, Professor of Management
