About Len Jessup
Len Jessup joins the Eller College of Management as dean and Halle Chair in Leadership this month. He completed his doctoral studies at the UA in management and organizational behavior and MIS under the advisement of Eller Professor of Management Terry Connolly and Regents Professor of MIS Jay Nunamaker.
In 2000, Jessup was recruited from the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University to head the Department of MIS at Washington State University (WSU).
During more than a decade at WSU, he served in a variety of leadership roles, including dean of the College of Business, vice president of university development, and president of the WSU Foundation. His most recent roles were chair of the Department of Entrepreneurship and Information Systems and director of the Center for Entrepreneurial Studies.
During his three-year tenure as dean of the WSU College of Business, Jessup led a significant elevation of the school’s reputation, successfully oversaw its accreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, and developed and launched an ambitious strategic plan.
In his role at the WSU Foundation, Jessup led the transformation of the university’s fundraising efforts, which resulted in doubling its overall fundraising totals and achieving record numbers of donors. During his tenure, the university received a commitment for the largest gift in its history and initiated its largest comprehensive campaign.
