The longtime leader of the University of Virginia’s Colgate Darden Graduate School of Business plans to step down in July 2015. Robert Bruner (picture courtesy of UVA) plans to return to the Darden faculty and take a one-year leave of absence after his term as Dean expires next year. Bruner first arrived on the North Grounds in 1982. UVA President Teresa Sullivan says Bruner has enhanced the Darden School’s reputation with his unrelenting searches for talented faculty members and students. Darden Professor Ken Eades will chair a committee that will search for Bruner’s successor.
