University of Arkansas Chooses Cherokee Dean

Cherokee Nation citizen Stacy Leeds will take over as dean at the University of Arkansas School of Law July 1, making her the first Native American woman to serve as dean of a law school.

Leeds is currently working at the University of Kansas School of Law where she is the interim associate dean for academic affairs, a professor of law and director of the Tribal Law and Government Center.

“We are honored to welcome Dean Leeds to the University of Arkansas,” said G. David Gearhart, university chancellor, in a press release “As a nationally recognized scholar, judge and administrator, she is the ideal person to guide our law school to unprecedented heights.”

Leeds will take over for Cynthia Nance, who has served as dean since being appointed in 2006.

“I am truly honored to join the University of Arkansas family at this moment in the life of the law school,” Leeds said in the release. “Under Dean Nance’s leadership, the work of the faculty, staff and students has garnered national attention. I am excited to join the law school community at a time of such immeasurable possibilities for continued successes.”
