Dynamic Dean: Jennifer Troyer

Monday, February 8, 2021
Dean brings a business mindset and an entrepreneurial approach to leadership.

Jennifer Troyer, who became dean of the Belk College of Business in July, is focused on the college’s future.

The pandemic has not deterred Troyer from her goal to connect the greater Charlotte business community and the college’s alumni network.

She’s also is guiding Belk College’s yearlong 50th anniversary celebration, which continues through April 2021 with events such as the Dean’s Leadership Series. And she is focused on the college’s future, with the development of a new strategic plan, which will be informed by ongoing discussions with Charlotte’s business leaders and Belk College faculty, students and alumni.

Novel approaches include a new podcast series, an e-newsletter and virtual events.

“Our constituents agree that Charlotte needs a business college focused on creating new knowledge, offering research expertise and related graduate programming and providing a high-quality, accessible educational experience for students in the region,” Troyer noted in an Inside UNC Charlotte feature.
