Eastman made the decision after receiving much encouragement to run for the post, but he says he leaves his current role with "mixed feelings."
"On the one hand," notes Eastman, "it is an exciting undertaking for me and my family, one that will, if successful, allow me to bring my particular constitutional expertise to bear in helping solve some of the many problems our state currently faces."
The constitutional law scholar joined the institution's faculty in 1999 and rose to the role of dean in 2007. Eastman has since garnered much acclaim from his faculty members, students and peers.
