Rich Kriegbaum was honored for his service as interim dean of the School of Business during faculty-staff break April 27.
Kriegbaum, president of FPU from 1985 until 1997, assumed the interim position in June 2011, after the retirment of Dennis Langhofer. Among Kriegbaum's major tasks work to himself put of the job by finding a permanent replacement, which came in the form of John Kilroy, who joined FPU in Janaury.

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.
