An Open Letter from Dean Slabach to the Law School Community

It is with mixed emotions that I inform you that I will leave the position of Dean of Texas Wesleyan University School of Law effective May 31, 2006.

For the past five years, I have served on the Board of Trustees of the Harry S. Truman Scholarship Foundation in Washington, D.C. The Foundation was established by Congress to be the exclusive memorial to President Truman. It conducts a highly selective annual competition and awards $30,000 graduate study scholarships to 70 students nationwide who are committed to public service careers. I have had a 28-year association with the Foundation since being selected as a Truman Scholar in the first class of 1977. Over the years, I have served the Foundation in many capacities, most recently as the Treasurer of the Board of Trustees.

The Executive Secretary of the Foundation recently announced his retirement after sixteen years in that position. The President of the Truman Foundation, former U.S. Secretary of State, Madeleine Albright, offered me the position of Executive Secretary and Chief Executive Officer effective June 1, 2006. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that I simply could not turn down.

The dynamic environment of Texas Wesleyan has been a wonderful place for my family and me professionally and personally. I am proud of the school’s many accomplishments, which are largely due to the commitment and perseverance of the enthusiastic student body, and I am confident that the school will continue to excel.

It has been a pleasure getting to know the alumni and the larger legal community, and I am grateful for their ongoing support. Most of all,
I appreciate the opportunity to work with a wonderful group of students, faculty and staff who have worked so hard and with such success as we continue to build an excellent law school.

I look forward to working with you for the next six months as dean and thereafter as an ardent supporter of Texas Wesleyan School of Law.


Frederick G. Slabach
