Meet the Dean
As Dean of Saunders College of Business, Jacqueline Mozrall brings a wealth of academic leadership and University experience including over 20 years of service at Rochester Institute of Technology.
Prior to joining the Saunders College as the Dean, Dr. Mozrall served as Professor and Senior Associate Dean of the Kate Gleason College of Engineering. She worked closely with the Dean to assist in achieving college level goals, including diversifying the student body and faculty, supporting excellence in undergraduate and graduate education, fostering research and creating strong connections with employers and alumni. She was focused on college level policy development, coordination of program assessment activities, curriculum review, and the enhancement of student advising processes and student services to support retention. Jacquie has been a member of the management team for the Women in Engineering Program at RIT for more than 10 years. Since this time, there has been more than a tripling in the number of women in the entering class. She has also been involved in the coordination of the multi-disciplinary senior design and honors programs for undergraduate students. She has been actively engaged in program assessment for more than 10 years, serving as a program evaluator and training mentor for the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). She is also executive director and principal investigator of a $420,000 Toyota USA foundation grant to support the development of in-lab and on-line activities linking K-12 STEM curriculum to real-world engineering problems.
Prior to becoming Associate Dean, Jacquie 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 work with a dedicated group of faculty and staff to further strengthen the department's reputation for excellence in undergraduate education while significantly increasing 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 research funding). These increases were driven by a strengthened program portfolio that included the introduction of relevant courses and minors at the undergraduate level and the development of several master's and dual degree programs. Strong relationships with key industry partners and alumni were created, including the establishment of the Toyota Production Systems Lab. Student success also flourished during this time and included the introduction of new advising models.
