The University of Arkansas at Little Rock has appointed Robert Mitchell to lead their School of Business.

The school is part of the university’s largest college, the College of Business, Health & Human Services, which is also under new management. Frank Braun was appointed dean earlier this month.

Mitchell brings more than four decades of UA Little Rock experience to his new role. Most recently he was chairman of the Department of Management, Marketing and Technology. Mitchell also served as Chair of the Department of Business Information Systems, Assistant Dean for Undergraduate Studies, and Interim Dean of the College of Business.

“I am honored to be the director of the School of Business as we address the changing needs of our students, faculty and employers with our career-focused study programs and outreach activities,” he said in a press release. “I look forward to working with our business school, which has a strong academic and entrepreneurial background to address the changing college landscape and business environment.”

Mitchell also served in the nonprofit sector as a director of Delta Pi Epsilon for 24 years. Delta Pi Epsilon is a professional organization focused on promoting excellence in research and teaching in business.

He has received the College Excellence in Research Award, several Distinguished Paper Awards from the Federation of Business Disciplines, and the John Robert Gregg Award.

Mitchell holds a PhD in business administration and an MBA from Louisiana Tech University.

In addition, Richard Woolridge, Associate Professor of Information Systems, has been appointed interim professor in the Department of Management, Marketing, and Technology.

Woolridge joined the UA Little Rock as a professor in 2010. He holds a bachelor’s degree in business informatics from the University of Texas at Arlington, as well as a master’s degree and a Ph.D. in Management Information Systems from the University of Alabama.
