Michelle Sabick to lead engineering and computer science school

Michelle Sabick has been named dean of DU’s Ritchie School of Engineering and Computer Science. She will begin her new role on March 1. 

An expert in the biomechanics of the shoulder and elbow, medical device development and engineering education, Sabick has worked at several of Colorado’s top educational and medical institutions, including as senior staff scientist at the world-renowned Steadman Hawkins Sports Medicine Foundation in Vail. Most recently, she served as dean of the Parks College of Engineering, Aviation and Technology at Saint Louis University.

“I look forward to working closely with the faculty, staff, students, alumni and other stakeholders to develop and implement a shared vision for the future of the Ritchie School, and with my fellow deans to advance interdisciplinary collaborations that address the grand challenges confronting our region, nation and world,” Sabick says.
