Darlyne Bailey is an American education administrator and professor. She is the Dean of the Graduate School of Social Work and Social Research at Bryn Mawr College, where she also serves as Special Assistant to the President for Community Partnerships. She began this position in 2009. Prior to this, she was at the University of Minnesota, as the first Dean of the then newly merged College of Education and Human Development from 2006 to 2008 and, from 2008-2009, as Assistant to the President. Bailey was formerly the Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean of Teachers College at Columbia University, from January 2002 to September 2006. From 1988-2002, Dr. Bailey was the Dean of the Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences at Case Western Reserve University.

Dr. Bailey earned a Master's degree in psychiatric social work from Columbia University and a doctorate in organizational behavior from Case Western Reserve University.


In 2008, Dr. Bailey was linked to disgraced academic Madonna Constantine, who was dismissed from the Teachers College after a lengthy investigation into charges of plagiarism and abuse of power. Allegations of misconduct first came to light in 2005, when Suniya S. Luthar was elected to replace Madonna Constantine as Department Chair, as Constantine was to go on sabbatical. Luthar conveyed multiple complaints by students and faculty to Dr. Bailey (a close friend of Constantine), while Bailey was Dean of Teachers College. Dr. Bailey reportedly sought to protect Constantine's job at Teachers College despite her own conflict of interest; she forced Luthar to step down as Department Chair.[1][2]

In February 2008, findings of an 18-month investigation indicated that Madonna Constantine had in fact published the work of others without attribution.[3] [4] Constantine’s appointment was officially terminated in June, 2008.[5]

The same year (September 2008), Bailey stepped down from the position of Dean at the University of Minnesota, but remained as an an assistant to the president and a faculty member. In May 2009, Bailey was named dean and professor of the Graduate School of Social Work and Social Research and special assistant to the president for community partnerships at Bryn Mawr College.
