Andy Armacost has no fear of the obstacles in his new post as AFA dean of faculty.
Brig. Gen. Andy Armacost sees the world as a giant math word problem.
The new dean of faculty at the Air Force Academy, Armacost focuses on operations research, using math to solve organizational problems.
"Effectively, it's trying to solve the world's largest word problem," he says.
It's an approach he put to good use as head of the AFA management department, and while forging deep roots in the Colorado Springs business community. He hopes to use his new position to further strengthen the service academy's role in business development and tech transfer.
As dean, Armacost will inherit his share of challenges: tighter budgets, immediate faculty furloughs and a new superintendent, Lt. Gen. Michelle Johnson, with her own goals and demands. But he plans to continue encouraging cadets to get more involved in the community through internships and research programs, as well as transferring technology from the research lab to the private sector.
Armacost has been personally involved in that effort himself, as a professor in the business department.
"I was one of three professors who created FalconWorks, a nonprofit that takes ideas from the Academy and transfers them into products for the developmentally disabled," he said."We've had one major success - PointScribe - and we'll have others, I'm sure."
...
PointScribe is one project that Armacost helped develop beyond the research labs.
...
"We have 17 or 18 in a class," Armacost said. "We'll be bumping that up to 20 or 21."
Those are things he has to do as dean. But he says his job is really about helping create the next generation of Air Force leaders.
"We are 100 percent focused on getting them ready for service," he said.
...
Armacost says he has a good start already, thanks to groundwork set by his predecessor, Brig. Gen. Dana Born.
"The strategic direction of the institution is solid," he said. "Gen. Born laid out a fantastic foundation for the school. At the end of the day, these cadets will have a great start because of what she did."
And Armacost will have his own seal on the job, says Stewart.

"The Prep School does a fine job of preparing anyone who has any gaps in their education to come to the academy," said Andy Armacost, the academy's dean of faculty.
...
Armacost, the dean, admits that the basketball stars got special treatment, but denies there was wrongdoing.
Often, he said, cadets - athletes and nonathletes - encounter scheduling conflicts that require special arrangements. The two stars, he said, needed a class time that didn't conflict with basketball practice.
"I would say what we were trying to do is accommodate the needs of an economics major," Armacost said.
...
Armacost and Mueh said Mullin is wrong and that repeated internal reviews prove it.
...
Armacost said he's investigated the allegations that management majors got a break, and studied the possibility of grade inflation for athletes.
Neither happened, he said.
"Any claims of our faculty not having the integrity, those are heavy allegations and we will look into them," Armacost said.
