New dean of the School of Business John Kilroy (right) and new professor of biblical and religious studies Ryan Shellenberg (left) joined Fresno Pacific University in January.
Kilroy, Ph.D., takes over from interim dean Richard Kriegbaum. “To be a part of the leadership team involved in advancing the academic excellence of FPU is both exciting and humbling. I am looking forward to the opportunities and challenges we at the School of Business will encounter as we continue to build a bridge between the university and the communities we serve,” Kilroy said.
FPU has added a record number of faculty and staff to support this fall’s predicted record enrollment of 3,700 students. On August 22, 14 new faculty and 23 new staff got their fist official look at the university with a bus tour from the main campus to the Bakersfield and Visalia centers.
