Fran Dorn, the Virginia L. Murchison Regents Professor in Fine Arts and Distinguished Teaching Professor in the Department of Theatre and Dance, leads the Acting Program at The University of Texas at Austin, where she has taught since the spring of 2000.

With guidance from her students and the never-to-be-taken for granted works of William Shakespeare, Dorn continues to grow as a teacher.
