LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — The dean of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock's law school plans to step down next summer and return to the classroom.
John DiPippa has been dean of the William H. Bowen School of Law for 3½ years. He plans to work on a textbook on the law and public service, and to revise another publication. He also plans to work on a joint law degree-master of public service program with the Clinton School of Public Service.
The law school has seven partnered-degree programs with various institutions, including programs in business and public health.
While dean, DiPippa led the school through reaccreditation and raised $3.3 million in current and future funding.
Interim Provost Sandra Robertson will consult with Chancellor Joel E. Anderson and the faculty to find a replacement.
