UCD creates Carey chair

February 16, 2011

By Staff Reporter

Former N.Y. Gov. Hugh L. Carey will be honored in a new chair in Organizational Behavior at University College Dublin’s Graduate School of Business.

The new chair will be a major step in making Smurfit School UCD a significant research center in organizational behavior.

Carey, a two-term New York governor, was born in Brooklyn, the third of Margaret and Dennis Carey’s six sons. His mother’s ancestors were from County Tyrone, his father’s from County Galway. Carey was elected the 51st governor of New York on Nov. 5, 1974 and was reelected in 1978.

Tom Moran, chairman of the North American Advisory Board at Smurfit School of Business, UCD, and president and CEO of Mutual of America Life Insurance Company, said: "It is wonderful to be able to honor Gov. Carey, a great governor of New York and an outstanding Irish American, for his historic record of achievement. This chair is being established in recognition of Gov. Carey’s leadership in the face of New York’s historic fiscal crisis, as well as his early and tireless efforts to bring peace and reconciliation to Ireland."

The interdisciplinary field of Organizational Behavior — drawing on psychology, sociology, economics and political science — focuses on the structure, design and behavior of

organizations, as well as the behavior of individuals and groups within organizations.
