Former Duquesne University law dean Donald Guter will be the next president and dean of South Texas College of Law. Guter is currently on the faculty at Duquesne's law school and served as its dean from 2005 through 2008. He was ousted as dean in December when Duquesne President Charles Dougherty gave Guter 24 hours to resign or be removed. Dougherty cited unmet expectations by Guter to work with the university's administrative team. There was a student demonstration on campus by Guter's supporters who questioned the reasons behind his ouster. Guter takes on his new role at South Texas College of Law in August. He retired from the U.S. Navy in 2002 as a Rear Admiral, Judge Advocate General's Corps.
