At their very best, deans facilitate and leverage the opportunities and accomplishments of others. It is in this spirit that I look forward to working with faculty, students, staff, and alumni to advance our deeply important mission with a shared sense of urgency and purpose," Massey said in a university release.
Massey received both her bachelor’s and doctorate degrees from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. She is currently a Dean's Research Professor of information systems at the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University Bloomington.
The educator has received numerous awards for her teaching, including the IU Board of Trustees' Distinguished Teaching Award. She has also received support for her research, which looks into the role of information technology on team performance as well as technology-driven innovation processes and strategies, according to the release.
She was chosen by a 17-member search and screen committee. Terry Warfield, a UW-Madison professor of accounting and information systems, served as chair of the group.
"Professor Massey, an accomplished scholar and award-winning teacher, also brings a strong record of academic leadership and collaboration that will serve well the School of Business and the University of Wisconsin-Madison,” Warfield said in the release.
