Pacific Welcomes Its New Eberhardt School of Business Dean

Dear Pacificans,

I am excited to announce that Charles Moses, dean of the School of Management at the University of San Francisco, will be University of the Pacific’s new dean of the Eberhardt School of Business. Dean Moses has served as dean at USF since July 2019, leading the school’s successful efforts to increase enrollment, create new industry partnerships, expand internships, cocurricular opportunities and executives-in-residence programs, build new global opportunities and community partnerships and raise nearly $25 million. He also created new degree programs in business analytics and marketing intelligence, developed new market-driven executive and certificate programs, secured reaccreditation and increased U.S. News & World Report rankings. I am thrilled to welcome Dean Moses to Pacific. I know he will take our strong Eberhardt School of Business and bring it to new heights, just as he did at USF, through his collaborative leadership style and focus on innovation, entrepreneurship and the student experience.Read the full announcement of our new business school leader. Dean Moses will start June 1 and Professor Lewis Gale, who has served as interim dean of the school during the search process, will return to his full-time faculty role. I want to thank Professor Gale for his steadfast leadership during this time and for his continued service to Pacific. I also want to thank the search committee members for their hard work and effort that brought us such an outstanding slate of candidates for this important leadership role. Led by McGeorge School of Law Dean Michael Hunter Schwartz, the search committee includes Scott Biedermann, Evan Dreyfuss, Chris Ferguson, Sally Hamilton, Jim Hetrick, Albert Huang, Hannah Ketcherside, Margaret Roberts, Leticia Robles, Pete Schroeder, Dara Szyliowicz and Mary Wardell-Ghirarduzzi.


Best, Christopher Callahan President
