UA fine arts, legal counsel posts get interim heads

Citizen Staff Writer



Two key leadership positions at the University or Arizona have been filled with interim leaders.

Jory Hancock, director of UA’s School of Dance, has been appointed interim dean of the College of Fine Arts.

He replaces Dean Maurice J. Sevigny, who announced last month he will retire a year earlier than planned.

In addition, Lynne O. Wood, UA deputy general counsel, will serve as interim vice president for legal affairs and interim general counsel.

She will replace Judith E. Leonard, who has taken the position of general counsel for the Smithsonian Institution.

Hancock will begin his interim position July 1, and Wood will begin June 6, UA leaders said.

The university will conduct an internal search for a permanent College of Fine Arts dean, Provost Meredith Hay said in a campus memo.

The position of UA general counsel will be permanently filled only after a national search, President Robert N. Shelton said in a news release.

Leslie Tolbert, vice president for research, graduate studies and economic development, will chair the search committee for general counsel.

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
