He has also chaired the advisory committee of the Center for European and Eurasian Studies and been centrally involved in the writing of Title VI proposals. Ron has considerable broader administrative experience on campus, including chairing the Department of Political Science and the Council on Academic Personnel."

Ronald Rogowski is a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and has received prizes from the American Political Science Association for best book in Political Economy and best paper at the APSA Annual Meeting. His work combines rigorous social science theorizing with deep historical and cultural knowledge, particularly with respect to Europe.

Geoffrey Garrett writes: "In addition to continuing as director of the Global Fellows program, I have asked Ron to assist me in the day-to-day management of the Institute and its centers and programs so as to allow me to focus my efforts on new programmatic initiatives and on development efforts to strengthen the Institute’s financial base."
