U.Va.’s Darden School Names New Assistant Dean For Career Services

January 27, 2000 -- The University of Virginia’s Darden Graduate School of Business Administration has promoted Anne Harris from director of career services to assistant dean for career services.

"With Anne’s leadership, we have increased the number of companies that recruit students on grounds from 90 to more than 200, developed a network of 400 companies that recruit off-grounds and seen the average annual salary offered to our graduates rise by nearly 30 percent," said Dean Edward A. Snyder.

Harris has strengthened relationships with corporate partners through such initiatives as the newly established corporate advisory board, which advises the school on the skills most in demand in the global marketplace. She also has worked to integrate professional development into the "Darden experience" and added full-time advisors to help students refine their job-search techniques and tap into a network of more than 1,200 alumni for career advice.

Harris’s priorities will include strengthening Darden's relationship with Virginia’s high-technology community, especially in Northern Virginia.

Harris joined Darden as director of career services in 1995, after serving as a human resources executive for Citigroup, Monsanto and ELSI. She is a graduate of the University of Vermont and received her master’s degree from Cornell University.
