Dean Durand's Announcement

Friends and colleagues: I write to let you know that I will be retiring and leaving the Boyd School of Law this coming summer.  Boyd is my home, and leaving home is always difficult, but Veronica and I are eager and joyful to relocate closer to family in the Black Hills of South Dakota and to begin a new chapter of our life together.

It has been my privilege and my blessing to have been a part of Boyd from its nascent days to its current -- and most unusual -- days. To students past and present, I thank you for all you have done to build and maintain the collegial, supportive, and vital culture that is the hallmark of Boyd Nation. To staff and faculty past and present, I am grateful and indebted to so many of you for the guidance and encouragement you have given me, the collaborative work we have done, and the good fun we have had. I will endeavor to offer my thanks personally and privately to as many of you as I can in the weeks to come.
