“It’s an honor to join an institution of Indiana Wesleyan’s caliber that is re-inventing business education by integrating technology and leadership,” Cully said. “Innovation is ultimately about people. At DeVoe, we are equipping leaders to navigate AI transformation equipped with a Biblical perspective that carefully considers the impact to individuals, the company, and society.”

Cully’s announcement follows closely with Dr. Andy Hughes’ arrival as the new dean of the DeVoe School of Business, Technology, and Leadership.
