Anastasia "Stacy" Morrone, interim dean of the Indiana University School of Education at IU Bloomington, will be appointed dean through June 2023, subject to final approval by the Board of Trustees at its June 2021 meeting. Morrone is the school's first female dean.
Morrone began her interim appointment in July. She is a professor of educational psychology and teaches courses in adolescent development and psychology of teaching. Her current research focuses on technology-rich, active-learning environments that promote student motivation and learning.
"It's an honor to continue to serve as the dean of the IU School of Education," Morrone said. "Since becoming interim dean last summer, I've worked to move forward on several major initiatives and goals, including growing our online graduate offerings, recruiting a larger and more diverse class of undergraduates and increasing access to innovative technologies and learning spaces. I look forward to continuing this important work with the school's excellent faculty, staff and students."
