Dean Karen Gould says Mark A. Raider, PhD, is recognized as a highly respected scholar and efficient administrator, a talented leader successful at developing and strengthening community partnerships.

Now, Raider brings all those skills – and a passion for American Jewish and Zionist history – to McMicken College of Arts and Science, as department head and Jewish Foundation Endowed Chair of the Department of Judaic Studies. His wife, Miriam B. Raider-Roth, PhD, has joined UC as an associate professor in the College of Education, Criminal Justice, and Human Services.

“He has had a very distinguished career … We were so impressed and ultimately, persuaded that he was the very best candidate for this position,” Gould said.
