Michael Beseda named Vice President for Enrollment and Communications

Dear Saint Mary’s Community,

As we continue preparing to welcome back faculty, staff, and students, I am pleased to announce that Michael Beseda will be returning to Saint Mary’s College as Vice President for Enrollment and Communications, starting August 16. Michael is no stranger to our community; he is a 1979 summa cum laude graduate of the Integral Program at Saint Mary’s College and started his career here as an admissions counselor, advancing to Vice President for College Communications and Enrollment.

Michael has a distinguished record and has served in leadership roles at Saint Mary’s, Willamette University, and the University of San Francisco, where he currently serves as the Vice Provost for Strategic Enrollment Management and is responsible for recruitment, admission, enrollment and financial services, university registrar duties, and enrollment communication. 

Please join me in welcoming Michael when he begins his tenure at the College in two weeks.
