“Fordham University has appointed Virginia Roach, Ed.D., as dean of the Graduate School of Education, following a national search. Roach comes to Fordham from the Bank Street College of Education in New York City, where she has been dean of its Graduate School of Education since 2011. Her appointment at Fordham will begin in the 2015-2016 academic year.
‘Fordham’s Graduate School of Education is an important resource for New York City schools and teachers—one that extends Fordham’s influence well beyond the campus gates,’ said Joseph M. McShane, S.J., president of the University. ‘Therefore, I am very pleased to welcome a dean of Virginia Roach’s stature and experience to Fordham. We expect great things from her, and from GSE under her leadership.'”
