Leadership Transition in the School of Law

January 23, 2023

Dear Colleagues,

I am writing to inform you that, effective today, January 23, 2023, Amy Wildermuth has resigned from her role as Dean of the School of Law in order to re-engage in academic pursuits and assume a tenured faculty role.

I am grateful that Vice Dean Haider Ala Hamoudi has agreed to assume day-to-day oversight of the school until I name an Interim Dean and subsequently announce a search for Amy’s successor. I look forward to supporting the School of Law during this transition and in the time ahead.
