Dennis Kratz Dr. Dennis M. Kratz was Dean of the School of Arts and Humanities for 22 years and is the Ignacy and Celina Rockover Professor of Humanities at The University of Texas at Dallas. Prior to his appointment in 1997 as Dean of A&H, he served as the University’s Dean of Undergraduate Education. As Dean, scholar and teacher, Kratz emphasizes “meaningful transformation.”

In response to the needs and opportunities that emerged as President Benson began to implement his Strategic Plan, Dr. Kratz accepted a new appointment. Effective September 1, 2019, Dr. Kratz assumed the title of Senior Associate Provost and Founding Director of the Center for Asian Studies.

To celebrate his new role the School of Arts and Humanities launched a new research fund in Dr. Kratz’s honor.
