New UA dean faced challenge

Citizen Staff Writer
Our Opinion

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.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
