Texas hires Farnsworth
The University of Texas has hired Ward Farnsworth to take over as the school’s new dean on June 1. Farnsworth was previously the associate dean for academic affairs at Boston University School of Law, where he joined the faculty in 1997.
He replaces Larry Sager, who resigned in early December amid controversy over bonuses paid to new faculty.
