Meet the Dean

Charles B. Knapp is an economist and educator.  He is the President Emeritus of the University of Georgia and currently serves as Interim Dean of the University’s Terry College of Business.

Dr. Knapp was the President of the University of Georgia from 1987 to 1997.  During his tenure the academic reputation of the university rose dramatically, over $400 million of new construction was completed, and a successful capital campaign was concluded.  He worked closely with then Georgia Governor Zell Miller on the establishment in 1993 of the widely recognized HOPE scholarship program, which has since provided $6 billion in financial aid to over 1.5 million Georgia postsecondary education students.
