Our Opinion: New UA dean faced challenge

Lawrence Ponoroff

The University of Arizona snagged a star when it selected Lawrence Ponoroff as dean of its James E. Rogers College of Law.

Ponoroff comes to UA after eight years as dean at Tulane University School of Law in New Orleans.

He was highly praised for leading a traumatized student body and faculty through the rebuilding of Tulane in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

Ponoroff also served as part of Tulane’s leadership group that coordinated the rebuilding and reopening of the university after Katrina struck. He called that incident “an extraordinary experience that forced us to face challenges that were unprecedented in legal and higher education.”

Leading a school through one of the worst natural disasters in American history is an experience unlike any other. We hope Ponoroff’s challenges here are far less daunting.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.

For all of the stories that were archived by the Tucson Citizen newspaper's library in a digital archive between 1993 and 2009, go to Morgue Part 2
