The former dean of one of the most important drama schools in the country will be the next chairman of the Southern Methodist University theater department.

Stan Wojewodski, Jr. ran the Yale School of Drama and the Yale Repertory Theatre for 11 years — teaching and working with some of America's most talented stage artists. This fall, he will succeed Cecil O'Neal as the chair of SMU's theater department.
