UW-Madison alumnus Anand R. Marri was named dean of the University of Rochester’s Warner School of Graduate Education and Human Development.

Marri earned his Ph.D. from the School of Education’s No. 1-ranked Department of Curriculum and Instruction in 2003.

Marri, who also is a member of the School of Education’s Board of Visitors, is the vice president and head of outreach and education at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, and a professor of social studies and education (research) at Teachers College, Columbia University.

Marri will begin his new position on Jan. 1, with a five-year term, the University of Rochester announced in this news release.

“With his energy, intellect and passion, Anand Marri immediately stood out as the top candidate to lead the Warner School of Education,” Rob Clark, University of Rochester provost and senior vice president for research, said in a news release about the appointment.  “He is well respected among educators in New York State and nationwide, and he has clear ideas for how the Warner School can thrive in its missions to innovate K-12 education, contribute research that addresses the most profound problems facing U.S. education, and effectively prepare teachers and administrators to make a difference in the schools that need them the most.”
