Batten School Dean Leaving At End Of Term

The first dean of a relatively new school at UVA is stepping aside. Harry Harding (pictured) will leave next July at the end of his five-year term as dean of the Frank Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy. The school was set up in 2007 with a $100 million donation from the late Frank Batten, Sr. He was the owner of Landmark Communications and the one who started the Weather Channel. After retiring from the dean’s chair, Harry Harding will return to teaching and writing. (Photo by Jane Haley from University of Virginia)
