Professor Andrew Klein to Serve as Chancellor’s Chief of Staff
Professor Andrew R. Klein has joined the office of IUPUI Chancellor Charles Bantz as part-time chief of staff. “Andy Klein’s experience as associate dean, his commitment to public service and IUPUI, his professional skills, and sound judgment will work together well in the varied responsibilities typically handled by a chief of staff,” said Chancellor Bantz. Professor Klein will take over the duties of Roger Schmenner who returns to the full-time faculty of the IU Kelley School of Business. Professor Klein joined the IU School of Law–Indianapolis faculty in 2000 where he is the Paul E. Beam Professor of Law. He served as Associate Dean for Academic Affairs at the law school from 2004-2007. His scholarship focuses on the intersection of tort and environmental law. As chief of staff, he will have day-to-day oversight of intercollegiate athletics, act on the Chancellor’s behalf in service on major projects, and handle other duties as assigned. He will continue teaching half time at the law school.
