Associate Professor Edward Fubara named interim dean of Campbell Business

BUIES CREEK -- Dr. Edward Fubara has been appointed interim dean of the Campbell University Lundy-Fetterman School of Business effective Thursday, Oct. 1. Fubara, who joined the Campbell Business faculty in 2005, will serve as interim dean until the next dean is identified. A national search will commence later this month.

“With over a decade of faculty and administrative experiences at Campbell, Dr. Fubara is uniquely and well-prepared to assume the role of interim dean for our School of Business,” said Campbell Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost Mark L. Hammond. “Ed’s efficient management style and gentle, professional demeanor will make him especially successful as we transition and conduct a national search for a new dean. I am excited for the business school students and faculty that he is willing to fill this hugely important role. I look forward to working with Ed in this new capacity and to helping with his transition.”

An associate professor of business, Fubara currently directs the Campbell Business MBA Program and teaches courses in management, human resources, organizational behavior and business ethics. He holds a bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of Benin in Nigeria, and MBA and Ph.D. degrees in management from Michigan State University’s Eli Broad Graduate School of Management. Fubara is also an ordained minister.

“I am deeply honored by the opportunity to serve the Lundy-Fetterman School of Business in the capacity of interim dean,” said Dr. Fubara. “My goal is to maintain the momentum and the upward trajectory that we’re currently on. I hope to be a servant leader to the faculty, staff, and students, a good representative of the Business School and, like John the Baptist, one who will help prepare the way for the next dean. Ultimately I pray that the Lord will be glorified through it all.”

This past May, Fubara traveled to Haiti alongside the Hope for Haiti Foundation in an effort to investigate ways in which Campbell Business could be exposed to global business and service learning opportunities.

Fubara’s scholarly work has been published in the Journal of Applied Social Psychology, the Journal of Management Studies, the Journal of Diversity Management, and Christian Higher Education. He is also the author of the inspirational book “Lessons from the Life of a Bald-Headed Blind Clown.”

A native of the Rivers State in Nigeria, Fubara resides in nearby Angier, North Carolina, with this wife, LaVerne, and their four sons.
