MILWAUKEE — Dr. Janet Wessel Krejci, vice president for academic affairs and provost at Illinois State University, has been named the next dean of Marquette University’s College of Nursing, Provost Daniel Myers announced today. Krejci, who served as associate dean for undergraduate programs in the college from 2004–07, will begin in her new role on Jan. 1, 2017.

“We’re really fortunate to welcome Dr. Krejci back to the Marquette family, this time as dean of the College of Nursing,” Provost Myers said. “She has great passion for nursing education and Marquette University, and she’s demonstrated progressive leadership from which the college and the university will benefit immensely.”

Prior to her role as provost, Dr. Krejci was dean and professor of nursing at Illinois State’s Mennonite College of Nursing from 2009–14. Previously, she spent 21 years in Marquette’s College of Nursing in roles ranging from research assistant to associate dean. From 2007–08, Dr. Krejci was a fellow of the American Council on Education. She was also selected as a Robert Wood Johnson Executive Nurse Fellow from 2008–11.

“I have been truly blessed to serve in leadership positions at two amazing, mission-driven university communities, Illinois State University and Marquette University,” Krejci said. “I hadn’t intended to leave ISU at this time, but this wonderful opportunity at Marquette makes it very exciting to return home to Wisconsin, to Marquette and to nursing. I’m looking forward to working side by side with Marquette’s new innovative leadership and the always dedicated, creative, and passionate faculty and staff in the College of Nursing.”

Krejci earned her bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees in nursing all from the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee. She is a fourth generation Wisconsinite, and her parents, sons and some of her siblings are Marquette alumni.

Krejci succeeds Dr. Margaret Faut Callahan, who left the university a year ago to become the provost for the health science division at Loyola University Chicago.
