June 05, 2017

UW-Madison alumna Suzanne Rosenblith has been named dean of the University at Buffalo's Graduate School of Education.

Rosenblith received a Ph.D. from the School of Education’s Department of Educational Policy Studies in 2001.

Rosenblith currently works as an associate dean and professor at Clemson University. The appointment at the University ​at Buffalo is effective July 1. She is widely known for her research on the relationship between religion and public schooling.  

According to a University ​at Buffalo press release, Provost Charles F. Zukoski said there was a highly competitive pool of candidates, but that "Dr. Rosenblith stood out because of her impressive administrative experience, collaborative approach to leadership, creative ideas for approaching issues facing education programs nationally and clear vision for furthering the Graduate School of Education’s mission."

Rosenblith was crucial to the "reorganization and reimagining" of Clemson University's School of Education, according to the press release, and will now bring her innovation and skill to another school. 

“The faculty in the Graduate School of Education have a long and impressive reputation for high quality and impactful research. Their collective status as leaders in the field of education –- practice, policy and research –- is well-deserved," Rosenblith said in the release. “I am truly humbled to have the opportunity to work alongside them and extend the work already underway.”
