Aric Short moved into the vice dean position following time spent as the interim dean of  Texas A&M University School of Law. The move happened when Andrew P. Morriss began his appointment as the dean of the school on July 1, according to the TAMU Times.

Short has been at the law school for close to 12 years and helped transition the law school to Texas A&M University. Prior to his work as the interim dean, Short worked as the associate dean for academic affairs and worked as a professor of law. He specializes in Property and Wills & Estates courses.

Short’s duties as vice dean will include investigating, developing and implementing academic programs at the school.

“In particular, I will be looking at interdisciplinary programs with other Texas A&M colleges, like engineering, business and medicine,” Short said in an interview with the TAMU Times.

“We will also explore joint degree programs, as well as any new degree programs that would be valuable for our students and our school. In addition, my office will oversee international programs, including possible collaborations with foreign schools and study abroad opportunities for our students.”
