UTSA names dean of new Graduate School

(Sept. 9, 2004)--UTSA announces the appointment of Dorothy Flannagan as dean of the Graduate School.

The appointment follows the recent renaming of the Office of Graduate Studies as the Graduate School; Flannagan served as interim dean of graduate studies.

"A benchmark of a research university is exceptional graduate programs," said UTSA President Ricardo Romo. "The Graduate School is key in laying the groundwork to become a tier-one research university. With the exceptional skills of Dorothy Flannagan, the UTSA Graduate School will help build our research capacity and recruit more graduate students."

Flannagan said, "The founding of the Graduate School emphasizes the support of the UTSA administration for graduate student issues, including the development of new graduate programs and an emphasis on research excellence. This signals the beginning of expanded recruiting efforts and enhanced collaboration with faculty. I look forward to helping to achieve UTSA's mission through further development of our programs and student services."

A UTSA associate professor of psychology, Flannagan received an M.A. in psychology from the University of Richmond and a Ph.D. in developmental psychology from North Carolina State University. Her research focuses on memory development, family influence on child development and the elderly, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

Flannagan has been a reviewer for professional journals including Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, Journal of Child and Family Studies, and Sex Roles, and professional conferences including the Society for Research in Child Development and the Conference on Human Development.
