Wake Forest University School of Law is pleased to announce that Rogan Kersh (’86), the University’s new provost and professor of political science, will participate in the law school’s  “Conversation With”  series at 2 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 30, in the Worrell Professional Center,  Room 1312.

Law Professor Jonathan Cardi will be the moderator of this event, which is free and open to the public.  Light refreshments will be served.

After graduating from Wake Forest College in 1986, Kersh earned two master’s degrees and a doctorate in political science from Yale University.  He held faculty positions at Yale and Syracuse University before serving as associate dean of academic affairs and professor of public policy at New York University’s Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service.

Kersh is a nationally-recognized expert on health-care policy and obesity.  As provost, he serves as the University’s chief academic officer and supervises the deans of the undergraduate College, Schools of Business, Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, School of Law, School of Divinity, and the Library.

Kersh has articulated a bold vision for the future of Wake Forest as the nation’s premier collegiate university and describes his return to the Reynolda Campus as, “the deepest kind of homecoming imaginable.”

This program will count as a career education program for the law school’s 1L Career and Professionalism Certification.
