Longtime Faculty Member Raymond Nimmer Named Dean at Houston

The UH press release is here.  I suspect Nimmer is a very fine choice, but it's a shame they felt the need to mention an increase in US News ranking as evidence!  That, unfortunately, just contributes to the illusion that movement in US News is correlated with anything happening in the real world.  It's not.
