Dr. I. Douglas Moon, who served as the U-M-Flint School of Management dean from January 2003-June 2007, died Sept. 13 at his home. He was 62.

"Dean Moon's contributions to the School of Management will endure for decades," says U-M-Flint Provost Jack Kay. "Doug was a caring individual, and we will miss him very much."

Through a generous endowed gift of $10,000, he created the I. Douglas Moon School of Management Undergraduate Merit Scholarship Fund. Creating the scholarship was a demonstration of his commitment to the highest academic standards at U-M-Flint. His fund will support the education of undergraduate students who have demonstrated academic excellence.

Before coming to U-M-Flint in 1989, Moon was a faculty member at Columbia University and Rutgers Graduate School of Management.

Under his leadership the school established its first global articulation agreements for international undergraduate and graduate education. During his tenure, he signed six articulation agreements for double MBA degree programs with business schools in India, Taiwan, China and South Korea.

Funeral services were held Sept. 17.
