Dr. Quiester Craig's Retirement Celebration

Celebrating a Legacy of Excellence…

A 40-year Journey in Education

Dr. Quiester Craig, Dean of the School of Business and Economics, will retire after 40 years of service to North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University. He has been instrumental in providing exemplary leadership to the School of Business and Economics for over four decades and is credited with its success in receiving undergraduate accreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business in the late ‘70s, creating the first accounting program at an HBCU, and so much more.
