Marjorie Zatz is a trained sociologist whose research focuses on race, gender, the law, and most recently on immigration policy and its effects on youth and families. Since the summer of 2020 Marjorie Zatz has served as interim Vice Chancellor of Research and Economic Development. Her previous work as Dean of the Graduate Division earned her a place in Diverse: Issues in Higher Education's 2019 Top 35 Women in Higher Education list. In her present role, Zatz's driving goal is to reach Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education R1 status -- something only earned by doctoral-granting universities conducting exceptional research activity. Zatz brings such zeal to her work that previous colleagues have likened her to Energizer Bunny because of the energy and enthusiasm she brings to the job. Read more about her latest role here
