As the Associate Dean of Undergraduate Programs in the School of Business at Portland State University, Erica Wagner serves as the primary leader for this nationally ranked undergraduate program which enrolls over 3,600 majors and several hundred non-majors.  The School does not have departments and, therefore, oversight rises to the associate dean level. Erica’s priorities are organized into seven main categories: innovation & strategy; curriculum & program oversight; enrollment management; retention & student success; benchmarking & assessment; staff mentorship & management.

Erica’s leadership strengths are evidenced by students returning the School of Business at a significantly higher rate year-over-year, an increasingly diverse student body, and scholarly research on a retention initiative being accepted for publication by the Journal of College Student Retention.
