Walker School Names New Associate Dean of Academic Quality Assurance

| May 1, 2015


Webster University’s George Herbert Walker School of Business & Technology has named Simone Cummings as the new associate dean of academic quality assurance.

In this role, Cummings will serve as the chief assessment, accreditation and academic quality assurance officer for all academic programs offered by the Walker School worldwide. She replaces Peter Maher, who has been named interim associate vice president of Academic Affairs, International Campuses and Initiatives.

“Simone is a distinguished educator with a proven capacity to lead,” said Benjamin Akande, dean of the Walker School. “Her background in research and accreditation will be invaluable as we work to exceed accreditation standards and continuously improve student learning.”

Cummings joined the Walker School in 2013 as an associate professor of management, teaching finance and statistics courses in the Master of Health Administration program. Prior to joining the Walker faculty, she worked for a number of hospitals, including Barnes-Jewish Hospital, St. Louis Regional Hospital and Columbia Hospital for Women in Washington, D.C. She has also held faculty positions at Simmons College in Boston and Washington University in St. Louis.
