The Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) today announced it has appointed Jacqueline Mozrall as dean of its Saunders College of Business.
She had been serving as interim dean of the business school since last July and will assume her new post immediately, the university said in a news release. Mozrall has held several key leadership roles at RIT, most recently as senior associate dean of its Kate Gleason College of Engineering.
“As an RIT alumna who has been an integral part of our faculty for the past two decades, Jacquie is a committed educator, an able administrator and an innovative leader who will advance Saunders College’s core commitment to providing its students with an outstanding business education,” RIT President Bill Destler said in the release. “She has the global perspective and experience to strategically balance our local campus interests with national quality imperatives.”
RIT chose Mozrall over “a significant number of viable and highly qualified candidates in the nationwide search,” because she “distinguished herself with her vision for the college, her experience and skills as a leader and her significant understanding of and dedication to RIT,” according to Jeremy Haefner, RIT provost and senior vice president for academic affairs.
Mozrall received her bachelor’s degree in industrial engineering from RIT in 1987 and is enshrined in RIT’s athletics hall of fame for “an outstanding career in soccer,” the news release stated. She received a master’s degree in industrial engineering from North Carolina State University and a Ph.D. in industrial engineering from the State University of New York at Buffalo.
