UNH Law Honors the Legacy of Senator Warren Rudman
Senator Warren Rudman passed away this week at the age of 82 after fighting lymphoma. We are very saddened by the loss of this great man. His courage, leadership and willingness to work for the greater good will be profoundly missed.
It is for this reason that we are committed to establishing the Warren B. Rudman Center for Justice, Leadership and Public Policy at UNH Law to serve as an active, living tribute to Senator Rudman’s extraordinary years of state and national public service and to influence generations of new, public spirited lawyers.
The Warren B. Rudman Center for Justice, Leadership and Public Policy at the University of New Hampshire School of Law will be a fitting tribute to the life and legacy of Warren Rudman. Senator Rudman was honored to be the inspiration for this Center, and unequivocally supported our efforts to encourage future generations to follow in his footsteps.
Warren Rudman was a true statesman. Throughout his career, he advanced justice for even the most vulnerable among us. His bipartisan leadership is a model for future leaders who seek to govern in the country’s best interests, and his legacy of advancing sound public policy, efficient government, fiscal responsibility and integrity will be the framework that guides the mission and vision of the new Center.
When we think of Warren Rudman, we think of his bluntness, decency, courage and integrity. He was willing to take on tough issues, stand up to leadership in his own party, and fight passionately for what he believed in.
It's truly an honor to have an academic center named after me, especially since I can think of no greater mission than to train our next generation of leaders to seek justice, serve their country, and work together for the common good.
The Warren B. Rudman Center for Justice, Leadership and Public Policy will provide scholarship, training and opportunity for a new generation of leaders who cherish public service. These law students will have the chance to gain an understanding of its purposes as Warren Rudman understood them, based on principle, justice, common sense, common purpose and the common good. The Rudman Center and its programs also will serve as a living monument to Senator Rudman and the other leaders of his political generation whose values and examples it seeks to foster, transmit and preserve.
