Morelli succeeds Carol Hurd Green, who stepped down in July to become the director of the Donovan Urban Teaching Scholars Program in the Lynch School of Education.
"Gilda Morelli is an accomplished and dedicated teacher, mentor and researcher, and has been a wonderful advisor for hundreds of Boston College students," said A&S Dean Joseph Quinn.
This summer also saw the Law School make administrative changes in the areas of academic affairs, international study and library and computing services.
Sharon Hamby O'Connor was appointed as associate dean for academic affairs after serving in the BC Law Library for 23 years, most recently as associate dean for library and computing services.
Assuming O'Connor's former position is Filippa Marullo Anzalone, previously director of information and research services at the Northeastern University Law Library. Anzalone, a professor of law, also was acting dean of University Libraries at Northeastern during the 2000-01 academic year.
"It will be impossible to replace what Sharon has meant to our library, but Filippa is a wonderful addition to the community and will bring her own unique skills to the position," said Law School Dean John Garvey. "We are very lucky to have her."
In addition, Prof. David Wirth was appointed as the school's director of international programs. A faculty member since 1999, Wirth will maintain, refine and create initiatives that offer overseas opportunities for BC Law faculty and students.
Also this summer, the Carroll School of Management announced that Eugene McMahon, formerly assistant dean of CSOM's graduate programs, had been appointed the school's assistant dean. He replaces Amy LaCombe, who has accepted a full-time teaching assignment in the CSOM accounting department.
