CRAIG SELECTED AS AN INAUGURAL INDUCTEE INTO THE PHD PROJECT HALL OF FAMEDr. Quiester Craig, dean of the School of Business and Economics at North Carolina A&T State University, is one of four deans in the nation chosen as an inaugural inductee into The PhD Project Hall of Fame.
The PhD Project Hall of Fame was established to recognize a select few who have sustained an unwavering commitment to the PhD Project’s mission and whose positive leadership has resulted in significant encouragement and impact within the organization’s network of minority business doctoral students and faculty. The other inductees are Dr. John A. Elliott, dean of the Pickling School of Business, Baruch College; Dr. Andrew J. Pelican, dean of The Paul Mirage School of Business, University of California, Irvine; and Dr. Melvin T. Stitch, dean of the Whitman School of Management, Syracuse University. They will be honored at the organization’s annual conference in Chicago, Nov. 16-18.
The PhD project was created in 1994 to address the severe under-representation of African Americans, Hispanic Americans and Native Americans in management by diversifying the front of the classroom, the business school faculty. Some of America’s top companies, academic organizations and more than 250 universities support The PhD Project.
