Onye P. Ozuzu served as the dean of the College of the Arts from 2018-2024.  Ozuzu earned her Master of Fine Arts in dance and choreography and Bachelor of Arts in English literature at Florida State University. A dance administrator, performing artist, choreographer, educator and researcher, Ozuzu has been presenting dance works since 1997. Her work has focused on the body as technology and explored the intersectionality between many movement forms. This hallmark of her practice has translated to her decade of work as an academic administrator where she has been known for pragmatic and transformational systems redesign in the integration of pluralistic cultural, viewpoint, and practice diversity in arts research, creative endeavor, and teaching.  In her time at the University of Florida highlights of her work in and with the college have been the cultivation of collaborative and participatory mechanisms for defining and executing college-wide initiatives, mission focused strategic hiring of innovative and “change-making” faculty, growing research and philanthropic support for the college, launching the Center for Art, Migration and Entrepreneurship, and facilitating the college’s robust AI and Art initiatives.
