In Dr. Koerwer, the board has selected an entrepreneurial leader who has closely studied the interconnections of professional, business and liberal arts education and has developed innovative academic programs and strategic alliances across university campuses and with universities around the world.

In addition to the Moore School, he has served as an executive at two leading schools of management: the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and the Robert Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland. In accepting the Board’s selection, Dr. Koerwer commented on his appointment. During the course of his 20-year career in business and higher education, Dr. Koerwer has established a notable track record of collaboration and accomplishment at each institution he has served. Most recently at the University of South Carolina’s Moore School of Business, he managed a budget in excess of $50M, and led numerous redesign and development initiatives including the school’s first inclusive, comprehensive strategic planning process. Continuing his record of establishing international partnerships, he forged an alliance with the University of Tikrit in Iraq, laying historic groundwork for building a new education system for the nation as it works to establish a new education and social infrastructure. Dr. Koerwer co-launched three companies including a software company focused on knowledge management and back office operations for higher education clients and a boutique consulting and training firm.

community service

The Newberry College women’s basketball team took time off during their fall break to visit the local Boundary Street Elementary School and teach the students about the importance of reading. “It’s our second year of visiting Boundary Street and we’re happy to have the opportunity to do this,” said Newberry head basketball coach Sean Page. “It’s such a fantastic opportunity for our young ladies to have an impact on the young people from our community and be positive role

models.” The Wolves visited classrooms and read books to kindergarten through fifth graders during their visit. “Our student athletes get a great amount out of it and they thoroughly enjoy doing it,” added Page. The team will make weekly visits to the school throughout the year and aid in after-school tutoring and mentoring to the students.
