Rosario Ceballo, a University of Michigan alumna and former university faculty member, has been appointed dean of the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts, the university’s largest academic unit.

Ceballo currently is the dean of the College of Arts & Sciences and professor of psychology at Georgetown University. Her appointment to a five-year renewable term that starts August 15 was approved June 20 by the U-M Board of Regents. Ceballo also was appointed as a professor of psychology with tenure and a professor of women’s and gender studies without tenure.

She will succeed Anne Curzan, who will return to the LSA faculty, where she is a professor of English language and literature, linguistics, and education.

Timothy McKay, Arthur F. Thurnau Professor, professor of physics and astronomy, and associate dean for undergraduate education in LSA, and professor of education in the School of Education, will serve as interim LSA dean July 1-August 14, prior to Ceballo’s arrival and following Curzan’s transition to the LSA faculty July 1.
