Sevigny’s vision will be missed

These are exceptionally difficult times for the University of Arizona, and Maurice J. Sevigny is one of the victims.

Sevigny, dean of the College of Fine Arts for 18 years, recently told his faculty he will retire in June.

“In this lousy economy, it’s not as much fun,” he said.

Under Sevigny, UA has developed a nationally recognized college with five distinctive schools – art, music, dance, theater arts and media arts – that draw students from across the country. Admission to the college is extremely competitive.

Tough economic times are difficult, and it is understandable that after four decades in higher education, Sevigny doesn’t want to fight new battles.

But UA will deeply miss his vision and his leadership.

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
