College of Law Career Center Director Brad Morgan has been selected to serve as interim assistant dean of students at the college, effective March 1.
Morgan replaces former College of Law Assistant Dean Katrice Morgan, who filled the position since 2007.
Brad Morgan has led the Bettye B. Lewis Career Center since May 2016, first as interim director then as director. During his tenure, Morgan and the Career Services team helped the college reach its highest rate of graduate employment in recent years for both 2017 and 2018 graduates.
Morgan joined the College of Law in 2010 as the mentoring and access to justice coordinator, overseeing UT Pro Bono and developing the college’s first mentoring program. Under his leadership, UT Pro Bono saw a 40 percent increase of student body participation.
Morgan also served as associate director of the College of Law’s Institute for Professional Leadership from 2014 until 2017 and has taught a variety of leadership and litigation courses.
College of Law Dean Melanie Wilson said she is grateful to have a leader with Morgan’s experience stepping into the position on an interim basis.
“As we begin the process of searching for the next assistant dean of students at the College of Law, we are incredibly fortunate to have someone with Brad Morgan’s successful track record helping us maintain the level of service and assistance we provide to our students,” Wilson said. “I have every confidence that Brad will ensure that this important transition proceeds as seamlessly as possible.”
Within Career Services, Assistant Director Joe Christian, who joined the College of Law in August 2010, will serve as interim director while a national search to permanently fill the assistant dean of students position is underway.
