As the president of Bethune-Cookman University, Dr. Chrite led the institution through an accreditation review that strengthened institutional governance and fiscal integrity. Under his leadership, the university secured continued accreditation while eliminating deficits and achieving institutional stability. In partnership with the university’s faculty senate, he overhauled faculty governance and consolidated academic units to allow more efficient operations and administrative leadership.

While serving as dean of the Daniels College of Business at the University of Denver, Dr. Chrite oversaw the development of a strategic plan aligned with the changing higher education landscape, leading to new programs as well as increased enrollment, student satisfaction, and revenues.

Bentley University has been educating business-minded students since Harry C. Bentley first convened 30 accounting students on Huntington Avenue in Boston in 1917. From those humble beginnings, they’ve continuously adapted to become one of the top business universities in the U.S. for over 100 years.
