As you may know, the Cornell Hotel and Restaurant Administration Quarterly, or CQ, is published by the Center for Hospitality Research, or CHR, which itself is a unit of the School of Hotel Administration at Cornell University. This past spring, the School of Hotel Administration, or SHA as we commonly refer to it, completed its search for a new dean. Michael D. Johnson, who is currently D. Maynard Phelps Collegiate Professor of Business Administration and Professor of Marketing at the Stephen M. Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan, was selected as the next dean of the school. Because of other commitments, Dean Johnson will not be assuming his new responsibilities until July 2006, and so I’ll save my comments on him for a future column. To cover the one-year interim, Hotel School Professor Sheryl E. Kimes graciously agreed to serve as dean. Consequently, I wish to focus here on the contributions of Professor Kimes, formerly the Richard and Monene P. Bradley Director for Graduate Studies in the SHA.
