UHV dean accepts vice chancellorship

Charles Bullock, dean of the School of Business Administration at the University of Houston-Victoria, has accepted an appointment as vice chancellor of academic affairs at Chapman University College.


He will assume his new duties on July 14 in Orange, Calif.


Bullock joined UHV's faculty as an assistant professor of accounting in 1990 and has served as the dean of the business school for the past 12 years. His many achievements as dean include developing new innovative programs such as the MBA Online and a master’s degree in economic development and entrepreneurship; earning accreditation by AACSB International – The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business; and building a strong professional staff and faculty.


Under his leadership, UHV's business enrollment has grown by more than 150 percent, and the school and its programs have been ranked by the Princeton Review,, Entrepreneur and Fortune Small Business. The school also has been recognized for its international initiatives and its achievements in online delivery, integrated curriculum and assurance of learning.


"Dean Bullock has been a distinguished dean and a wonderful colleague; he has accomplished much, and we extend our thanks and best wishes to Charles as he pursues this new career opportunity," UHV President Tim Hudson said.


Bullock also had kind words for UHV.


"I have truly enjoyed working with Dr. Hudson and the other members of the UHV leadership team," Bullock said. "I'm very proud of the work that we accomplished together, and it is difficult to leave UHV, but I know that Chapman will also be a wonderful place and that this is the right choice for me at this point in my career."


Bullock said he is confident of UHV's continued success, and that he will miss working with the provost and his fellow deans, especially as they develop a plan for downward expansion to make UHV a four-year destination university.


UHV will undertake a national search for a new dean, Hudson said. Bullock will remain with UHV through June.

The University of Houston-Victoria, located in the heart of the Coastal Bend region since 1973 in Victoria, Texas, offers courses leading to more than 80 academic programs in the schools of Arts & Sciences; Business Administration; and Education, Health Professions & Human Development.
