Dr. Christopher Thompson appointed academic dean of St. Paul Seminary School of Divinity
Father Dennis Dease, president of the University of St. Thomas, with the approval of Archbishop Harry Flynn, has appointed Dr. Christopher Thompson as academic dean of the St. Paul Seminary School of Divinity, effective July 1.
Thompson is an associate professor in the departments of Catholic Studies and Theology at St. Thomas.
I take this opportunity to extend my personal sentiments of esteem and profound gratitude to Dr. Catherine Cory, who has served as interim academic dean of the seminary for the past 11 months. She has been an affable and competent administrator in this role and enjoys the highest regard of faculty, students and staff.
