Dean is a physician who previously shared a medical practice with his wife, Judith. He received his bachelor's degree from Yale University in 1971 and his medical degree from Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City in 1978. He served in the Vermont House of Representatives from 1982 to 1986, was elected lieutenant governor in 1986, and became governor in 1991 with the death of then-Governor Richard Snelling.

ICFRC is a non-profit association of community and university people interested in learning more about U.S. foreign policy, world affairs and current global issues impacting world societies. The group provides members with the opportunity to hear more than 35 experts per year who visit the UI campus and the Iowa City/Cedar Rapids area. Annual membership fees are $50 per person, $75 for a household of two, $25 for additional house member; and $20 for full-time students or visiting scholars.

Meetings are scheduled from August to June to take advantage of these speakers and are held at noon or in the evening to allow the widest possible participation from the business community, other professionals, the community at large and students, faculty and staff from the university. Meetings are scheduled at catered luncheons, as dinners or as evening desserts.

ICFRC is part of International Programs, which consist of a number of offices, centers, degree programs, academic programs, research projects and services. Organized under the associate provost for academic programs and dean of international programs, these units serve to further internationalize the campus and the community and promote global scholarship, research and teaching.
