Texas Wesleyan president resigns in July

Texas Wesleyan University President Frederick G. Slabach, who has led the Fort Worth school for more than a decade, will step down in July.

Slabakh recently accepted an offer to become dean of the University of Mississippi School of Law, of which he is an alumnus.

The appointment must be approved by the Mississippi Higher Education Board of Trustees at their February meeting.

“To be invited back home to help run my alma mater, one of the oldest public law schools in America, is an honor,” Slabach said in a press release.

Prior to his appointment, Slabach served as Dean of the Texas Wesleyan University School of Law and Chief Executive Officer of the Harry S. Truman Fellowship Foundation in Washington, DC.

Texas Wesleyan’s endowments doubled under Slabach’s leadership, with administrators pouring over $50 million into the campus, according to school data.

Freshman applications have increased by more than 280% since Slabach took over in 2011, the university said. The overall freshman enrollment increased over 80% as the school gained recognition as both an institution catering to Hispanics and an institution catering to minorities.

Currently, about 2620 students study at the university.

“President Fred Slabach has been an incredible leader, not just for Texas Wesleyan University, but for the whole of Fort Worth,” Fort Worth Mayor Matty Parker said in a statement.

The Wesleyan administrators of Texas have set up a website to share more information about the search for the next university president as it becomes available.
