Dr. Dona Schneider has been appointed Dean to the University College.  As Professor and Associate Dean for Programs at the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy, she also serves as PI for the HIV Community Prevention, Support and Development Initiative, a grant-funded unit that trains and provides technical assistance to community-based organizations across the State. Professor Schneider primarily teaches courses in epidemiology and serves as article, book and grant reviewer for more than 30 journals and publishing houses. Her CV lists more than 150 refereed journal articles, books and book chapters, mostly focusing on mortality, morbidity and risk factors for disease, especially for children and minorities.

She is particularly pleased to be named Dean of the University College.
