Pryor Stepping Down as Clinton School Dean

JANUARY 20, 2006 - Posted at 4:19 p.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Former Arkansas Governor David Pryor says he is stepping down as dean of the Clinton School of Public Service.

The University of Arkansas system said Pryor will leave effective February 15.

He said he's following the plan he set two years ago when he took the post.

Pryor was named dean in March 2004 and officially assumed the post June 1 of that year.

The school's first students began classes last August and will receive master's degrees in public service when they complete the two-year program.

Pryor has served as governor of Arkansas, as congressman, as a U.S. Senator, as Fulbright Distinguished Fellow of Law and Public Affairs at the University of Arkansas, and as director of Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government.

Thomas Bruce, the school's associate dean, will serve as dean pro tem while a search is conducted for Pryor's successor.
