Gulfport, Fla. - Stetson University College of Law is proud to announce the promotions of three faculty members to dean positions.

Royal C. Gardner is the new Vice Dean, and Professor John F. Cooper is Associate Dean for International and Cooperative Programs. Professor Theresa Pulley Radwan will serve as Associate Dean of Academics, effective in July.

“I have thought a lot about these decisions, and I am excited to have assembled such a talented and dynamic group,” said Stetson Dean Darby Dickerson.

The three new deans join Tampa Campus Associate Dean Jan Majewski, Associate Dean of Students Phebe Kerr and Assistant Dean of Admissions Pamela Coleman, whose duties will remain the same.

Vice Dean Gardner joined the Stetson Law faculty in 1994 after working for the Army General Counsel’s office and the Department of Defense. He was appointed Associate Dean in August 2001. His title change to Vice Dean took place March 1, and his change in responsibilities will occur in July.

Professor Radwan joined the Stetson faculty in 2001. Before joining Stetson, Professor Radwan practiced with the firm of Thompson, Hine & Flory LLP in Cleveland, Ohio, and taught at Case Western Reserve University School of Law and at the University of Cincinnati College of Law.
