Raffaella Borasi, who has served as dean of the Warner School for 15 years, will continue to lead the school for the next two years, President and CEO Joel Seligman has announced.

“The Warner School is now engaged in some critically important initiatives, most notably the one involving the renewal of East High School, and I am grateful that Dean Borasi has accepted my invitation to serve an additional two years as dean until June 2018,” Seligman says.

The University, as the Educational Partnership Organization, assumed full management responsibilities for East over the summer. Borasi has been instrumental in forging the partnership to improve the struggling city school.

Borasi was installed as the sixth dean of the Warner School in 2001. Under her leadership, the Warner School has experienced significant growth, more than doubling student enrollment and research funding. She has taken leadership roles in four National Science Foundation—funded grants from the Robert Noyce Scholarship Program (for a total of over $6.5 million), spearheaded the launch of online courses at Warner (achieving 61 online offerings in the first two years), and was the driving force behind the 2013 opening of Raymond F. LeChase Hall, the state-of-the-art facility that houses the Warner School.

“Dean Borasi has been a notably effective leader of the Warner School,” Seligman says. “Her steady hand has guided the school through challenging times. She has been a nimble and visionary administrator, as well, championing opportunities to expand the Warner School’s international and online programs to further the school’s influence and educational reach.”
