Shelton Rhodes named business college dean at Delaware State U.

The News Journal
June 21, 2011
Shelton Rhodes left academia last year to be a full-time entrepreneur.

He already owned a management consulting firm that was named one of the top 100 minority business in Maryland, and he hoped to expand into new ventures. But his post-academic life only lasted six months.

When he heard about the opening for a College of Business dean at Delaware State University, he jumped at the opportunity. Once he toured the Bank of America Building, the college's headquarters, and met with President Harry L. Williams and Provost Alton Thompson, he decided he couldn't turn it down.

"I knew they had this wonderful building here, and they had a new dynamic president and a provost with a lot of experience," Rhodes said."I wanted to be part of that."

DSU hired Rhodes after a national search narrowed the field to three finalists. His academic experience and leadership background distinguished him from the other candidates, said associate provost Bradley Skelcher, who chaired the search committee. Rhodes was the founding dean of the Howard S. Brown School of Business and Leadership at Stevenson University in Baltimore and a retired major in the U.S. Army.

"Those all stood out," Skelcher said. "During the interview process, it came out that he has the kind of qualities we want in an academic dean. He had impressive leadership credentials and academic credentials."
