Joyce HeamesThe associate dean for innovation, outreach and engagement at West Virginia University’s College of Business and Economics will soon assume the mantle of leadership for Berry’s Campbell School of Business. Dr. Joyce T. Heames will succeed Dr. John Grout, who is returning full time to the faculty after serving as dean since 2007.

Heames’ academic credentials include a bachelor’s degree and MBA from Samford University and a doctorate from the University of Mississippi. She joined the West Virginia faculty in 2006 and since has earned the Dean’s Award of Distinction in Service from the College of Business and Economics. Outreach – with an eye toward alumni involvement and stronger corporate relations – will be a point of emphasis in her new role.

Grout leaves the dean’s office after successfully overseeing renewal of Berry’s business accreditation by AACSB International. His duties going forward will include teaching, research and an ongoing leadership role within Berry’s groundbreaking creative technologies program.
