Larry Clark, dean of the Cameron School of Business at University of North Carolina Wilmington, has been named chancellor of Louisiana State University Shreveport, the Louisiana university announced Thursday afternoon.

“We are pleased to welcome Larry Clark as chancellor of LSU Shreveport and to the LSU leadership team,” LSU president and chancellor F. King Alexander said in the news release. “Dean Clark has extensive experience at numerous public universities as dean, including LSUS. We look forward to working with him in serving the educational and economic development needs of North Louisiana.”

In a message to Cameron School faculty, staff and other stakeholders Thursday, Clark wrote, “As you know, a very unique opportunity arose for me concerning the possibility of returning to LSU Shreveport as their next Chancellor. Yesterday I was offered the position of Chancellor. I have accepted their offer. … I will begin at LSUS on July 1.”

This will be Clark’s second tour of duty at LSUS. He served as dean of the university’s College of Business from 1985 to 1994, before going to Sonoma State University in California to become dean of that university’s business school, where he remained until 2000. He was named the Cameron School dean in 2000.

“I have greatly enjoyed the privilege of being the Dean of the Cameron School of Business,” Clark wrote in his message to his Cameron School network. “Together, we have accomplished some great things, including the creation of the Cameron Executive Network, expanding our global programs and beginning innovative new programs.

“The return to LSUS is bittersweet. I will miss UNCW, Wilmington and all of you. Georgia and I have loved being at this university in this community.”

According to the LSUS news release, Clark will assume the role of chancellor during the beginning stage of many changes taking place at the university, including the recent launch of a new doctoral program and the ability to offer classes in both the traditional setting as well as a more flexible eight-week accelerated format.
