Dr. Mozrall currently serves as Interim Dean for the Saunders College of Business. She is also Professor and Associate Dean in the Kate Gleason College. She works closely with the Dean to set the strategic direction of the College and assist in achieving College-level goals, including diversifying the student body and faculty, supporting excellence in undergraduate and graduate education, creating an environment to foster research and support development activities through creating strong connections with employers and alumni. She has also been focused on College-level policy development, coordination of assessment activities at both the undergraduate- and graduate-level, undergraduate and graduate-level curriculum review, and enhancement of college-level student advising processes and student services to support retention efforts.
Dr. Mozrall is a member of the executive management team for the award-winning Women in Engineering at RIT (WE@RIT). She has been actively involved in support of this program since 2003. Since this time, there has been more than a tripling in the number of women in the entering class, with the number of women in our engineering programs now exceeding the national average. She has a keen interest in undergraduate education and has been involved in the coordination of a multi-disciplinary senior design and honors programs for undergraduate students. She has been actively engaged in program assessment and evaluation for more than 10 years, serving as a program evaluator and training mentor for the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). She is currently serving on the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC/ABET). She is also executive director and principal investigator of a $420,000 Toyota USA foundation grant to support the development of engaging in-lab and on-line hands-on activities linking K-12 STEM curriculum to real-world engineering problems.
Prior to becoming Associate Dean, Dr. Mozrall served as the Department Head of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISE) at RIT from 2000-2010. During her tenure as department head, she had the pleasure to grow, and work with, a dedicated group of faculty and staff that further strengthened the department’s reputation for excellence in undergraduate education while significantly increasing their engagement in graduate education and research. There were significant increases in both undergraduate and graduate student enrollment (more than 50% increase) and faculty research (more than a tripling of the number of publications and external grants and funding). These increases were driven by a strengthened program portfolio that included the introduction of relevant courses and minors at the undergraduate level, the development of several dual degree programs (BS/MS, BS/MEng.) and three additional master’s degrees. Strong relationships with key industry partners and alumni were created, including the establishment of the Toyota Production Systems Lab. The department secured more than $1 million in corporate donations during this time. Student success also flourished during this time and included the introduction of new advising models and students receiving top five rankings, multiple times, in various national student competitions associated with systems simulation, material handling/distribution, and sustainability. Dr. Mozrall also led the development and implementation of a sustainable outcomes-based assessment process that has been modeled by other engineering programs within the College.
