Emeritus Professor Dale Beck Furnish has been elected Vice President of ASU's ASLAN Society, an interdenominational fellowship of faculty and staff members who are interested in the relationship of Christian faith with their vocation at the university.
The name Aslan is taken from The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis, in which Aslan the Lion symbolizes Jesus Christ, the Lion of Judah. The society seeks to encourage fellowship, prayer, development, outreach and service.
Furnish joined the College faculty in 1970 and taught in the areas of commercial law, including international trade, and comparative law, with an emphasis on Mexico and Latin America.
