Regents honor Klein, again

The following citation was presented by the Regents at their December meeting to Bernard Klein, interim chancellor at U-M-Dearborn.

“The Regents are once again indebted to Dr. Bernard Klein for his service as interim chancellor of the Dearborn campus since September of this year.

“As he did in 1979–80, Dr. Klein has once again brought his managerial skills to the task of maintaining this campus on an even keel while a new chancellor was recruited and installed. And once again, he went well beyond ‘maintaining an even keel’ and, even in this short period, sustained the momentum of the campus and added impetus to its efforts to move forward with many critical decisions.

“The Regents commend this valued member of the faculty and periodic administrator for his dedicated service to the Dearborn campus and to the University generally.

“The words of the immortal Yogi Berra, New York Yankee catcher, were never more appropriate: ‘It is sorta like deja vu all over again.’

“Thanks, Bernie, for a job well done ... again.”
