Alum Don Gibson Named Dean at Manhattan College

Friday, May 25, 2018

RIVERDALE PRESS (BRONX, NEW YORK) -- Gibson joins the school after 16 years at Connecticut’s Fairfield University. He earned his bachelor’s at the University of California in 1981 before earning a master’s in Radio and Television from San Francisco State University a few years later.

That took him on a path quite different from other business school deans — he had a career behind-the-scenes of television shows in the late 1980s, like Falcon Crest.

“It was an exciting place to be, and there were strict deadlines,” Gibson said. “It was fun working with creative people, but your life is devoted to a TV show, and I wanted to grow beyond that.”
