Jacqueline Mozrall has been appointed associate dean in the Kate Gleason College of Engineering at Rochester Institute of Technology. She succeeds Richard Reeve, who is retiring after 40 years in the college, having served in various capacities, including as a department head and associate dean. Mozrall assumed her new role Sept. 1.
Mozrall had been the department head of industrial and systems engineering at RIT for 10 years. During her tenure, the department has been recognized several times by the Institute of Industrial Engineers for excellence in teaching lean concepts and for curriculum innovation. The department ranks among the top 10 private universities in the U.S. in bachelor’s degrees granted.
Additionally, Mozrall is involved in the areas of research and outreach education, acting as co-principal investigator on a National Science Foundation grant, “Establishing the Foundation for Future Organizational Reform and Transformation @ RIT. ” She is also actively involved in the Women in Engineering at RIT program for K-12 education and mentors current female engineering students.
Outside of RIT, Mozrall serves as an industrial engineering program evaluator for the Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology, the organization that accredits college and university programs in science, computing, engineering and technology. She is a member of the American Society of Engineering Education, the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society, the Institute of Industrial Engineers and the Society of Women Engineers.
“I am excited to take on this new role and work at the college level to build upon the tradition of excellence in the Kate Gleason College,” says Mozrall, who resides in Pittsford with her husband and three children.
Michael Kuhl, professor in the industrial and systems engineering department will serve as interim department head. A search for this position is expected to begin later this fall.
