UNH names director of Warren B. Rudman Center
CONCORD — The interim dean at the University of New Hampshire School of Law, Jordan Budd, will step down and head the law school’s Warren B. Rudman Center once a permanent dean is named, the UNH Law School announced Monday.
UNH Law also said it has started a national search to select a permanent dean to head the school. And Richard Ashooh, who assumed the interim post at the Rudman Center last year, will spend his last day on the job March 18.
Budd will serve as both Law School dean and Rudman Center director until a new dean is named, said Keith Testa, a spokesman for UNH Law.
Budd’s Rudman Center salary will only commence once he leaves the dean’s post, Testa said.
“We thank Jordan for his tremendous service as interim dean thus far. While we will miss his leadership at the law school, we are eager for his work with the Rudman Center to begin,” said P.T. Vasudevan, interim provost at UNH.
Budd was appointed to a three-year term as interim dean in June 2014. Prior to his appointment, he served as the law school’s associate dean for academic affairs.
Also Monday, UNH announced the renaming of the center as the Warren B. Rudman Center for Justice, Leadership and Public Service — rather than Justice, Leadership and Public Policy.
