Hunter College has appointed Ann Marie Mauro as the next Joan Hansen Grabe Dean of the School of Nursing, President Jennifer J. Raab announced.
Dr. Mauro begins her new role on July 10.
“At this exceptional time in the history of our School of Nursing, Dr. Mauro has a clear sense of the challenges and opportunities of urban schools of nursing,” President Raab said, “and she has a thoughtful and tactical view of how best to address them.”
As a national expert in health professions, Dr. Mauro brings a strong record of administrative and academic accomplishments to Hunter. Dr. Mauro’s past leadership focused on expanding innovation, diversity and collaborative partnerships across academic and professional nursing organizations nationwide. As former Dean of Nursing and Health Studies at Monmouth University, Dr. Mauro opened a state of the art simulation lab and learning center while providing exceptional leadership for accreditation and regulatory compliance for many of the health studies and nursing programs.
She also served a pivotal role in the university’s crisis management team where she coordinated the university’s Covid response. Dr. Mauro is currently director of the Nursing Education Program and visiting professor at Teachers College, Columbia University, where she provides leadership for the online EdD, MEd, and post-master’s certificate programs.
Dr. Mauro is a fellow in several important national organizations including the American Academy of Nursing, American Heart Association, Academy of Nursing Education, and New York Academy of Medicine. In addition, she is the immediate past president of the Eastern Nursing Research Society, past member of the Council for the Advancement of Nursing Science National Advisory Council, and served six years on the National League for Nursing Board of Governors.
Before her Monmouth deanship, Dr. Mauro served as founding associate dean of the Center for Educational Research and Innovation at Rutgers University School of Nursing. Previously, Dr. Mauro was clinical associate professor of nursing at NYU and the founding chair of the university’s first non-tenure track faculty senators council. Prior to NYU, Dr. Mauro was assistant professor of nursing at Seton Hall University, where she held leadership roles in college governance while helping to develop a new nursing PhD program.
Hunter recently announced the establishment of the Evelyn Lauder Community Care Nurse Practitioner Program founded with the support of a $52 million gift from Leonard A. Lauder in honor of his late wife, a proud Hunter alumna.
Hunter College School of Nursing looks forward to Dr. Mauro’s visionary leadership as it continues its proud tradition of educating exceptional nurses prepared to provide outstanding research and care to diverse urban communities.
