NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. -- Ji Seon Lee,  a New Rochelle resident and associate professor of social work, has been named the associate dean of the Graduate School of Social Service (GSS) at Fordham University.

In her new capacity, Lee will oversee the GSS programming at the Westchester campus in West Harrison, N.Y. She replaces Janna Heyman, PhD, who held the position since 2010 and who has been named the Henry C. Ravazzin Chair in Gerontology.

Lee’s area of scholarly research is in long-term care policy, chronic illness, and older adult care. She was selected to be one of the first researchers as the Hartford Geriatric Social Work Faculty Scholar Program, a position she held from 1999 to 2000. She holds master’s degrees in social work and public administration and a doctorate in social work from Columbia University.

Fordham Westchester’s GSS is home to approximately 350 students. It offers full-time and part-time plans of study to earn a master’s in social work, with concentrations in clinical, human service leadership, community based practice, and leadership and research. The Westchester location, said Lee, offers students to attend a premier social work program and develop a community of students who are connected to and serve the needs of the larger population of the region.

“We hope that our faculty, students, and our neighbors in the region can become strong partners in building healthy and equitable communities,” said Lee.

Located in a three-story, state-of-the-art building on 32 acres in West Harrison, Fordham Westchester also offers classes in the University’s School of Professional and Continuing Studies, Gabelli School of Business, Graduate School of Education, and Graduate School of Religion and Religious Education.
