Dr. Renee Culverhouse appointed dean

Montgomery, Ala.—Huntingdon College president J. Cameron West and provost Chad Eggleston announced today the appointment of Dr. Renee D. Culverhouse as dean of the College’s W. James Samford Jr. School of Business and Professional Studies and professor of management and criminal justice. Culverhouse, who has served as director of the Huntingdon College Evening Studies program since 2010, follows Dr. Samir Moussalli in the deanship. Moussalli will return to the classroom.

“We are grateful to Renee Culverhouse for the leadership she has brought to our Evening Studies Program, and we look forward to the gifts she will bring as dean of the W. James Samford Jr. School of Business and Professional Studies,” said Eggleston. “At the same time, we are grateful to Dr. Samir Moussalli for overseeing the School for a number of years. This change will free him to return to the classroom, where his influence and guidance has shaped hundreds of business and accounting majors since he joined the faculty in 1990.” Moussalli serves as Frank A. Plummer Professor of Management and Dean Emeritus.

Culverhouse earned her Bachelor of Arts from Auburn University and her juris doctorate from Cumberland School of Law, Samford University. She has served in a number of higher education roles, including general counsel, vice chancellor, and director of legal and personnel services for the Alabama Department of Postsecondary Education; president of Gadsden State Community College; and professor and assistant vice chancellor for academic affairs at Auburn University-Montgomery.

Huntingdon College, grounded in the Judeo-Christian tradition of the United Methodist Church, is committed to nurturing growth in faith, wisdom, and service and to graduating individuals prepared to succeed in a rapidly changing world. Founded in 1854, Huntingdon is a coeducational liberal arts college. In 2014 The Chronicle of Higher Education recognized Huntingdon among “The Fastest Growing Colleges in America,” and Huntingdon has been named among the top regional colleges by U.S. News and World Report and by the Princeton Review.
