Celebrating Dean Williams

Dean Williams
After 21 years, Dean Verna Williams is leaving the College of Law. Yesterday we celebrated all of her wonderful accomplishments and thanked her for her leadership. It has been my pleasure and privilege to have served with Dean Williams at UC Law for over a decade,working first with her when she was a faculty colleague and then as dean. Whether as a faculty member, co-director of the Judge Nathaniel Jones Center for Race, Gender, and Social Justice, or dean, Dean Williams has continually demonstrated her care for students and colleagues even during the most difficult times. She helped to heal the College of Law and shepherded us through COVID and a new building. Truly, she will be missed.
