Thanks to our search committee for their work during the last few months. In particular, I thank Dr. Tony Marin and Ann Nieto for their leadership in the search process. I appreciate everyone’s participation in the interview process and for providing thoughtful feedback.
Please join me in recognizing and thanking Dr. Susan Waldo for her service as our Interim Dean of Students during the last two years. Her dedication to this role has been truly valued. Susan will resume her duties as Associate Dean of Students and Director of Campus Activities.
