Diehl Named Dean of the College of Liberal Arts
Dr. Randy L. Diehl, a professor of psychology at The University of Texas at Austin, has been named dean of the university's College of Liberal Arts effective June 1.
Posted: April 24, 2007
Dr. Steven Leslie, provost at the university, said Diehl will be appointed dean designate for the period April 23 through May 31 to allow him time to transition to the new position. On June 1, Diehl also will become the David Bruton Jr. Regents Chair in Liberal Arts, a position designated for the dean.
Diehl succeeds Dr. Richard Lariviere, who resigned as dean last June to become provost and executive vice chancellor of the University of Kansas. Dr. Judith Langlois, the Charles and Sarah Seay Regents' Professor of Developmental Psychology, has served as interim dean since Lariviere's departure.
