Please join me in welcoming Arnaldo Rodriguez as consulting vice provost for enrollment and communications. He spent 14 years as the vice president for admission and financial aid at Pitzer College in Claremont, California, as well as serving for many years as the dean of enrollment services at the Evergreen State College in Olympia, Wash. Rodriguez holds an Ed.D in educational leadership from Seattle University, a M.A. in counseling psychology from the University of Oregon, and a B.A. in psychology from the University of Portland.
Our search for a full-time vice provost for enrollment and communications continues this fall, with campus interviews likely before December. During this transition year, Rodriguez will be assisting us with major projects such as financial aid modeling, undergraduate recruitment materials, enrollment strategies and metrics, and review of our Fact Book. He will be on campus periodically throughout the academic year and can be reached through Janet Thys, coordinator for college communications and enrollment ([email protected]), or directly at [email protected].
