Debra Dzwonczyk is responsible for overseeing institute operations and the delivery of projects that engage University of Texas faculty, students, and partners. Debra began working with the IC² Institute on its graduate degree program, and then spent almost 20 years as assistant director of the IC² Global Commercialization Group, designing and implementing programs in 30 countries and 5 continents. Prior to coming to IC², she worked with two other UT departments on research publication and program coordination, and has editorial and teaching experience. Debra’s bachelor’s and master’s degrees are from Brown University and The University of Texas at Austin, respectively. Debra moved from the Boston area to Austin for graduate school. It still takes her by surprise to realize she has been a Texan for over 30 years.
