Garvey Interviewed in the Heights
- “I didn’t really have an interest in being a dean as an abstract matter[.] The glory of it is not great enough to make it worth while and I love being a teacher. But being the dean of a law school as prominent as BC is something that I thought was worth giving up teaching and writing books.”
- “The same things that attracted me to BC attracted me to Catholic[.] It’s the national university of the Catholic Church and I can’t imagine leaving this school to be president of just somewhere random.”
Students at BC Law have speculated as to Garvey’s replacement. One potential contender for the deanship, for example, is Michael Cassidy.
“An interim Law School dean will be named shortly, and a national search for a successor will begin this summer,” stated Jack Dunn, director of BC’s Office of News & Public Affairs, stated on June 15, 2010.
So far, though, Boston College Law School has named neither the next dean or appointed an interim dean.
Eagleionline Question of the Day. Garvey’s appointment as President of Catholic University becomes effective tomorrow, July 1, 2010. If no dean or interim dean is appointed today, who will be the “captain our ship” tomorrow?
