Dear College of Law Community,
After much deliberation and after many conversations with the dean and many of you who are part of the College of Law community, I have met with Dean Jennifer Bard today and taken steps to place her on administrative leave effective immediately.
The goal of this leave is to allow me time to solidify a transition plan for the College of Law. We have arrived at this point in time after much consideration. This decision is precipitated by a thorough evaluative process that involved in large part the College of Law community. I will work with the dean to develop a thoughtful transition plan in an expeditious timeframe.
While Dean Bard is on leave, I will ask senior faculty to step into transitional leadership roles to help with day-to-day operations both internal and external to the college.
I will also make myself available to the college and will plan to meet with faculty and staff of the College of Law community as soon as possible.
Please know that the needs of the college and the outstanding education we provide our students are my highest priorities in this time of transition and beyond.
