Bellevue University has chosen Donna McDaniel as its vice president and chief academic officer, effective July 1. McDaniel has served as dean of the university’s College of Business since 2004.
Prior to being named dean, McDaniel served as a faculty member in the College of Business. Like all Bellevue University faculty, she brought real-world experience to the classroom. McDaniel was the chief financial officer and chief operating officer of Advance, Inc., a government contracting firm providing computer services and equipment to the U.S. Department of Defense, General Services Administration and the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation
As dean, McDaniel oversaw all College of Business programs, curriculum, faculty, budgeting and strategic planning. During her tenure, the university received approval to add its first Ph.D. program – in Human Capital Management, taught in the College of Business. Bellevue University’s MBA program is the largest in Nebraska, with one of the largest online enrollments in the country. Bellevue University was the first school in the country to offer a full MBA program online.
Now, as VP and CAO, McDaniel will oversee all of the University’s academic programs and initiatives. Dr. Mary Hawkins previously served as the school’s chief academic officer through her role as provost. Dr. Hawkins will assume the role of university president effective July 1.
