I am pleased to announce the appointment of Wendy F. Hensel as the new dean of the College of Law, effective Nov. 15. Dean Hensel has served as interim dean of the college since Steve Kaminshine stepped down and returned to the faculty this past summer.
Hensel has served in various academic roles at the College of Law since 1999. In addition to her teaching and research duties, she was associate dean for research and faculty development from spring 2012 through summer 2017. Prior to her academic career, she was an associate at Alston & Bird LLP, clerked for Judge Orinda Evans in U.S. District Court for Northern District of Georgia and worked as an intern with the administrative unit at the U.S. Supreme Court.
Hensel earned her undergraduate degree at Michigan State University and her juris doctor at Harvard University. Her research interests include disability, education, employment and tort law.
We are grateful to the search committee, co-chaired by Kavita Pandit, associate provost for faculty affairs, and Rich Phillips, dean of Robinson College of Business, and to all of the faculty, staff and students who participated in the search process and provided important feedback on the candidates.
The continued success of the College of Law is essential to many dimensions of our university’s strategic plan. President Becker and I are excited to have Dean Hensel serve in this capacity and welcome her to our leadership team. We have great confidence in her ability to lead the College of Law through the coming years.
Risa Palm
Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost
