FORT WAYNE - IPFW has named Melissa Gruys dean of the Richard T. Doermer School of Business. Gruys comes to Fort Wayne from Wright State University, where she served as a professor and chair of the Department of Management and International Business.

IPFW says during her time at Wright State, Gruys led accreditation activities, curriculum efforts and the creation of new programs, including a human resources certificate program.

"I am extremely pleased to be joining IPFW and the Doermer School of Business," said Gruys "The focus on student success here by the faculty, staff, and administration aligns well with my professional and personal values. I look forward to developing strong relationships with other units on campus and with the business community that will benefit all stakeholders—students, faculty, and staff, the campus community, alumni, and the business community."

Gruys has already begun her new role, taking over the position on July 1.
