Rochester Institute of Technology has named its first female dean of the B. Thomas Golisano College of Computing and Information Sciences.
Anne Haake has been named to the post, university leaders said Friday. Haake was chosen following an international search. She has been serving as interim dean since July and will assume the dean’s chair on Friday.
“I am thrilled for the opportunity to become dean of a college that is conducting research and training the next generation of computing experts in a time when technology plays such a central, and increasingly important, role in everyone’s lives,” Haake said.
Haake has served RIT for 15 years in interdisciplinary curriculum development roles for several programs, including bioinformatics, medical informatics, the Ph.D. in computing and information sciences, and the human-computer interaction master’s program.
In addition, she has been a leader in interdisciplinary research, as principal investigator of National Science Foundation and National Institutes of Health-funded research.
The Golisano College is home to RIT’s computer science, information sciences and technologies, software engineering and computing security departments.
