Congratulations to academic excellence are in order!

Dr. Quiester Craig, Dean of the School of Business and Economics, will retire after 40 years of service to North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University. He has been instrumental in providing exemplary leadership to the School of Business and Economics for over four decades and is credited with its success in receiving undergraduate accreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business in the late ‘70s, creating the first accounting program at an HBCU, and so much more.

Above all his professional accolades and awards, his greatest gift to the university has been the mentorship he has provided on a daily basis to his current and former students, faculty and colleagues.

He is well known for requiring “excellence” – in and out the classroom and as he winds down his career, Craig’s legacy will be recorded as nothing short of phenomenal.
