Interim law dean named
June 18th, 2014
A message from Provost Rogan Kersh
This to affirm that Suzanne Reynolds (JD ’77) has graciously accepted my request to serve as Interim Dean for the coming academic year. Ron Wright, similarly graciously, has agreed to replace Suzanne for the year as Executive Associate Dean for Academic Affairs.
President Hatch and I wish Dean Morant well as he transitions to his new position in Washington. We have great confidence in our Law leadership team, under the experienced guidance of Suzanne, and look forward to working with the team–and, indeed, with all of you–to successfully navigate the shifting winds of legal education.
As President Hatch indicated in his university-wide note last week, we will launch a national search for Dean Morant’s successor, beginning this September. My grateful thanks in advance to each of you for your support of this vital endeavor. And a special note of appreciation to Suzanne and Ron for their willingness to take on these essential interim roles: your support will be all the more valued as we steer a forward course together.
