The University of Notre Dame has appointed Sarah Mustillo I.A. O’Shaughnessy Dean of the College of Arts and Letters. She succeeds John McGreevy, who is stepping down July 1 after serving 10 years as dean. Mustillo is department chair and professor of sociology. An expert in the social causes of childhood mental illness and statistical methods used in social science research, Mustillo joined the Notre Dame faculty in 2014, after serving seven years as a professor of sociology at Purdue University and six years on the faculty at Duke University School of Medicine. She has served as chair of the Department of Sociology since 2016.

As dean, Mustillo will lead Notre Dame’s largest and oldest college, comprising 20 departments and more than 550 faculty members.

She earned her master’s and doctoral degrees in sociology from Duke University, after graduating magna cum laude from Notre Dame in 1996 with a bachelor’s degree in sociology and gender studies. Mustillo’s research interests include medical sociology, statistics, social epidemiology and social psychology. She is co-editor of the American Sociological Review, author of more than 50 peer-reviewed journal articles and a frequent speaker at domestic and international conferences on topics ranging from child mental health and wellness to advanced statistical methods.

Mustillo has served as principal investigator or co-principal investigator on several multimillion-dollar grant-funded studies and is presently co-investigator on a $2.4 million study of sibling socialization of alcohol and drug use from early through late adolescence, funded by the National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism.

In the classroom, Mustillo has been honored with a number of awards for teaching and scholarship excellence, including a fellowship from the Center for Instructional Excellence at Purdue.
