CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — Fritz Drasgow has been named the dean of the university’s School of Labor and Employment Relations, pending approval by the U. of I. Board of Trustees.

A member of the Illinois faculty since 1982, Drasgow is a professor of labor and employment relations on the Urbana campus. He was appointed interim dean last August. He succeeds Joseph J. Martocchio, who returned to the faculty after serving as interim dean.

“Dean Drasgow has worked to better the financial condition of the college, to develop a team of leaders with a shared vision for the future and to improve student support services,” said Ilesanmi Adesida, the vice chancellor for academic affairs and provost of the Urbana campus.

Drasgow, who holds a dual appointment as a professor of psychology, is an expert on psychological measurement, computerized testing and modeling. His recent work focuses on psychometric theory for personality assessment. He is a co-author of the book “The Psychology of Work: Theoretically Based Empirical Research,” published in 2002.

From 1996-2004, he was a co-director of the Center for Human Resources Management on the Urbana campus.

He earned his master’s and doctoral degrees from Illinois, and his bachelor’s from State University of New York at Albany.
