Description

During Dorsey's nine years of leadership, he focused on restructuring administration and academics while enhancing the university's profile. SAT scores of incoming freshmen increased by nearly 100 points, and the student body increased from 5,200 to more than 8,150. The annual budget also expanded to $46.2 million from just $18.6 million. In 1986, Dorsey stepped down as UMBC's chancellor and took a position as special assistant to University of Maryland President John S. Toll. He later returned to teaching economics and retired in 2001. John Dorsey passed on July 24, 2014 at his home in Laurel, MD.
