I have mixed emotions in announcing the resignation of Dr. Mark Figueroa, director of institutional research, effective August 1, 2008. Since he assumed his position in 2004, Mark has been an invaluable resource in his role as director and an important contributor to many campus initiatives and strategic planning processes. As many of you know, Mark is a Southern California native, and he will be returning to the Claremont Colleges as director of institutional research for Scripps College.
While here, Mark made a substantial impact across the campus. He became a friend and mentor to many of us, and he will be sorely missed. At the same time, this is a wonderful opportunity for him. We will be holding a farewell reception for Mark later this month in the Soda Center.
Please join me in wishing him happiness and success.
