University of Georgia President-elect Jere Morehead has announced a former UGA president has been appointed to serve as interim dean of the Terry College of Business.

In a statement Wednesday, Morehead announced that Charles B. Knapp, former University of Georgia president and economics professor, will serve as interim dean of the university's business school between July 1 and June 30, 2014.

Knapp served as UGA president between 1987 and 1997 and serves on several business, education and community redevelopment boards.

A national search for a permanent dean was halted earlier this month, and Morehead says the search will resume this fall.

University of Georgia officials say the Terry College of Business enrolls more than 3,200 students in undergraduate, masters and doctoral programs.
