Pamplin's Sorensen To Retire in 2013

Virginia Tech's Pamplin College of Business Dean Richard Sorensen (right) will retire in July 2013 after serving the college for 31 years.

Before being appointed dean and professor of management science (now business information technology) at Virginia Tech in July 1982, Sorensen led Appalachian State University’s business school for nine years; thus, he will have been a dean for 40 years.

Under his leadership, the Pamplin College expanded student enrollments and academic programs; developed new international, leadership, ethics, and diversity programs; created new advising and career services for students and outreach services for businesses; and completed two major fundraising campaigns that exceeded their goals.
