LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar. 18, 2014--
Korn Ferry (NYSE:KFY), a single source of leadership and talent
consulting services, recently announced that they are partnering with
the Howard University School of Law, on the search for its new Dean.
The School of Law was created to provide legal education for Americans
traditionally excluded from the profession; especially African
Americans. The objective of the School of Law is to produce superior
professionals, capable of achieving positions of leadership in law,
business, government, education, and public service.
Located in the nation’s capital, Howard University is classified by the
Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching as a
doctoral/research university-extensive, and is accredited by the Middle
States Commission on Higher Education. Chartered by an act of Congress
in 1867, Howard University is the world’s largest comprehensive
university with a predominantly African-American enrollment.
As the chief executive and academic officer for the Howard University
School of Law, the Dean sets the standard for intellectual engagement
and accomplishment by providing strategic vision for and operational
leadership of the academic programs.
“The Howard University School of Law has been instrumental in leading
the charge for social justice, equality and civil rights," Interim
President, Dr. Frederick said. "The next Dean of the Law School will
fortify those areas of our legacy and will also contemporize the
instructional experience and grow areas that will allow our graduates
strong footholds in the future job market. We want our entire Howard
University community to be fully engaged.”
“We are honored to partner with the Howard University Law School on this
important search. It is an exciting and transformative time for the
Howard University community. The law school is well positioned to
attract a leader who aligns with their values and strong legacy, while
also innovating and preparing a new generation of lawyers who will make
an impact across the globe,” said Divina Gamble, Principal, Korn Ferry
and a member of the firm’s Global Education and Nonprofit practices.
Howard University School of Law is one of America’s leading centers for
legal education and research.
