Economist Rachel Croson Named Dean Of The UT Arlington College Of Business

UT Dallas President David E. Daniel called Croson "a very accomplished researcher" and an important mentor of students.

"We are very proud of her achievements and we congratulate UT Arlington on adding a highly qualified individual to its faculty and administration, someone whom we look forward to working with in this new role," Daniel said.

Croson succeeds Dan Himarios, who recently was named UT Arlington vice provost and executive director of the Center for Global Academic Initiatives. She officially begins her new position Jan. 14, 2013.

The UT Arlington College of Business is the second largest academic unit within the University with a fall 2012 enrollment of almost 5,700 students. Its business administration and accounting programs are accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.

Much of Croson's research has centered on experimental and behavioral economics, investigating how people make economic decisions and how to improve them, she said.

Those subject areas draw on and contribute to many disciplines, including economics, management, marketing, operations, political science and sociology, and her work has been published in myriad journals. As director of UT Dallas' Negotiations Center, she connected negotiation scholars with practitioners and business leaders to inform business practice through education and outreach.

Croson also is the co-editor of a forthcoming book, Oxford Handbook of Economic Conflict Resolution, with Gary Bolton, and is currently researching motivations for charitable giving, among other subjects.
