The VCU School of Education welcomes Dr. Kathy M. Rudasill as associate dean for research and faculty development.

Rudasill joins VCU from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln where she was the Susan J. Rosowski professor in educational psychology in the College of Education and Human Sciences; associate director of the Nebraska Center for Research on Children, Youth, Families, & Schools; and the director of the Temperament, Affect, and Behavior in Schools (TABS) Lab. She focuses her work on the interplay of children’s temperament and school support, shy children’s experiences with teachers, and school support for adolescents at risk.

In her new role with the School of Education, Rudasill will be responsible for promoting the scholarly agenda of the school through education and awareness of research opportunities, individual work with faculty and grant development.
