Leading the Way


At Mason, we believe that it will take all of us, together, to reimagine a better tomorrow.

George Mason University welcomed three new deans and a divisional dean in 2022 who are helping shape the university’s strategic vision and shepherd Mason to the next level. Ingrid Guerra-López, the new dean of the College of Education and Human Development, and Ajay Vinzé, the new dean of the School of Business, began their new roles on July 1.

Melissa Perry, the new dean of the recently renamed College of Public Health, started August 1 following the completion of a one-year Fulbright fellowship in Albania, where she focused on building capacity and training future environmental public health leaders.

Gurdip Singh, the new divisional dean of the School of Computing within the College of Engineering and Computing, also joined Mason on August 1, but he first spent the fall semester at the National Science Foundation (NSF). After completing his assignment as director of the Division of Computer and Network Systems in the NSF’s Computer and Information Science Engineering Directorate, he fully joined Mason in January 2023.
