Dr. Ryan D. Butt became the dean of the College of Business and Graduate School of Management at Lewis University on July 10.

Previously, Butt served as dean of the College of Business and Leadership at Lourdes University from 2013-2017. He was instrumental in leading the College through the reaccreditation of six undergraduate business programs and achieving initial accreditation for two graduate business degrees, including the MBA: leading the reorganization of College administrative structures and programs; growing the Business Leadership Advisory Council to strengthen connections for student success; developing a study abroad program for undergraduate business students in Italy and promoting international collaborative programs with institutions on four continents; and conducting international recruiting initiatives within China.

Butt said, “I am humbled to be a member of the Lewis University community; and am grateful for the opportunity to collaboratively lead the College of Business and the Graduate School of Management. Lewis’ standing, as well as our business programs’ reputation throughout the region and afar can be directly attributed as a result of our exceptional faculty members, the recruitment of outstanding students and sharing in the successes of our alumni throughout the world. I look forward to continuing the Lasallian tradition of excellence in educating and preparing our students to embrace future leadership experiences, rooted with strong values and a multi-dimensional understanding of today’s dynamic global business environment.”

Butt received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the University of Notre Dame and his Juris Doctorate from Valparaiso University.
