Harvard Law School Dean Elena Kagan has appointed Francis X. McCrossan to serve as dean for administration, the School's chief administrative and financial officer. McCrossan, who began work on Aug. 1, will oversee a range of administrative departments including Information Technology Services, Human Resource Services, Facilities Management, Financial Services, Administrative Publications, Major Capital Projects, and Administrative Services, which includes both Faculty Support Services and the Events Office.

McCrossan comes to Harvard after two decades in a variety of positions at Brown Medical School, most recently executive dean for administration. At Brown, McCrossan was instrumental in the growth of the medical school and its public health program. He has significant experience overseeing the construction of large capital projects.

"Fran McCrossan brings an excellent set of skills and experiences to the job of dean for administration," said Kagan. "His proven track record of effectively managing a wide range of administrative departments is the ideal background for his new position."

McCrossan holds an M.B.A. and a B.A. in biology from Boston University. He has served in various leadership positions with the Association of American Medical Colleges, including as a member of its business affairs group. An avid baseball fan, McCrossan is treasurer of the board of the Slocum Baseball Club and a coach of the Irish National Baseball Team. He lives in North Kingstown, R.I., with his wife Patricia and their four children.
