Mark J. Rozell has been reappointed for his second term as the dean of the Schar School of Policy and Government at George Mason University, according to an announcement from Mason’s Office of the Provost. In 2016, the university appointed Rozell as the founding dean of the Schar School, after he had served three years in an interim dean role.
The reappointment concludes a months-long process detailing the successes of Rozell’s first four years at the helm of one of the country’s highest ranked policy and government schools. In his announcement, Provost S. David Wu noted Rozell’s “steadfast leadership” during a period that saw the Schar School secure a $10 million naming gift and raise the school’s profile and reputation as well as maintaining his own “scholarly output while serving as dean.”
Wu also noted the results of a survey from Mason’s faculty and staff that acknowledged the respect by his peers and praised Rozell’s deep commitment to the Schar School.
“Dean Rozell…is committed to continuing his efforts to elevate the Schar School by continuing to strengthen and enhance high-quality and socially-relevant academic programs, by supporting faculty excellence, and by promoting professional services and development,” Wu said in a campus-wide statement.
“I am excited to continue to lead one of the most innovative and respected policy and government schools in the country,” Rozell said. “I look forward to continuing to work with faculty, staff, students, alumni, and friends of the Schar School to build on our successes and become a premier national and international thought leader in public policy and government studies.”
