Terry McCune was recently named Assistant Director of Graduate and Adult Business Programs. While assuming the responsibilities as the Assistant Director Terry continues to work as a Lecturer in the MBA program at Mount St Mary’s University’s Frederick Campus. Dean of the Bolte School of Business Karl Einolf had these words to share about Terry’s recent appointment, “Terry brings a passion for higher education and a wealth of experience to his new position. He has done an exceptional job developing our programs in government contracting, and in his new role he will help to grow our graduate and adult business programs in Frederick.

Terry obtained his undergraduate degree in Health Care Management from Park University and Master of Science degree in Contracts and Acquisition Management from Florida Institute of Technology. Following 24 years of military service, he worked in the Defense contracting industry and in the Federal Government as a civilian. As a Contracting Branch Chief at Fort Detrick, he developed contracting courses through a partnership agreement with the U. S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command and Mount St. Mary's University.
In November 2012 the Mount and Fort Detrick signed a two-year agreement for him to review Fort Detrick’s contract documents for statutory and regulatory compliance and develop training to correct negative trends. He also was a voting member of Fort Detrick's Contract Review Board to evaluate acquisition strategies, solicitations and contract documents for complex, high dollar acquisitions. During this time, he developed a Graduate Certificate in Government Contracting through the Mount. Following the course development, in addition to teaching, he obtained accreditation for the courses with the Department of Defense.
