On August 9, the Citadel appointed Professor Suzanne Ozmeat as its first dean of women. Ozmeat has been an English professor at the previously all-male military school since 1982, receiving tenure in 1986. She has been awarded the Faculty Merit Award twice. As dean of women, her responsibilities will include supervising the development of female cadets as members of the academic community. Citadel President John Grinalds speaks highly of Ozmeat: “She is a noted Victorian scholar, an able teacher…and she is also a very strong administrator.”
