About W.P. Carey - Dean's Council
The Dean's Council is a national group of prominent business executives invited to play a leadership role in shaping the future of the W. P. Carey School. Members advise the dean and act as W. P. Carey School advocates in their communities and organizations.
The Dean's Council membership supports our strategic initiatives and assists the W. P. Carey School in achieving the goals set forth by the dean. The membership meets twice a year to discuss issues as a Council and propose recommendations to the dean. In addition, there are several events throughout the year available for Council member participation. The Council’s current chairperson is John Sizer, partner, Deloitte LLP.
