By Karen Guin

Dean Michael Frumkin of the College of Health and Public Affairs is pleased to announce the appointment of Ronnie L. Korosec as associate dean for graduate studies and technology. Korosec is an associate professor in the Department of Public Administration. She also has served as the inaugural faculty fellow in the dean's office, from August 2008 to January 2009, when she was appointed interim associate dean for graduate studies and technology.  

"It is rare to find an individual who combines creativity and administrative competence. Dr. Korosec links these characteristics in a way that will help COHPA grow and develop in the future. She brings a sense of excitement and enthusiasm to her position and to the college," Frumkin said.  

Korosec earned her B.A. in political science from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte in 1988. She completed her M.A. in public policy administration and analysis and Ph.D. in political science in 1990 and 1994, respectively, from the State University of New York at Binghamton. She went on to spend four years as an assistant professor at North Carolina State University, where she also served as an instructor with the Kellogg Executive Leadership Program.
Korosec came to UCF in 2000 as a visiting assistant professor in the Department of Public Administration. She joined the faculty as an assistant professor the following year and was awarded tenure and promotion to associate professor in 2007. She has served as the program coordinator and adviser for the department's graduate and undergraduate internship programs and bachelor's and master's degree programs in public administration.
Korosec's professional interests include strategic planning and management; public administration and policy analysis; innovation, leadership and public management; service delivery and contracting; and e-government and information technology.
