More Dean Generosity: Who Will Be Next?
Karen Sloan (Law.com), More Dean Generosity:
A week ago, I wrote about the law deans at Penn State Dickinson and Pepperdine reaching into their own pockets to give back to their schools. Pepperdine’s Paul Caron told me he hoped to spark a movement, and maybe he has. Last week, Florida International University law dean Antony Page joined in with a $200,000 pledge that will establish a scholarship for law students who are the first in their families to go to college.
“I was drawn to FIU because of its mission as a public school. It is a transformational place. The FIU College of Law is majority first-generation, majority-minority, and we’re a law school that successfully delivers an outstanding legal education,” Page said in an announcement of the gift.
So that makes three. Who will be next?
