enjoyed working with Dr. Gordon. His leadership inspires the
University. From a Board of Regents perspective, he has challenged
us to see UNM in a new light, to see it for what it can be,

to the Universitys contribution to economic development
in the state of New Mexico. What was fragmented has been coordinated
and involves the entire campus. I hate to see Dr. Gordon go.

was always accessible to the alumni. His great sense of humor
combined with his keen intellect made him so easy and enjoyable
to work with. Above all, he understood the importance of a strong,
independent Alumni Association and the many ways in which alumni
support the University.

Gordon is a man of character and professionalism. It was very
easy to talk with him about student issues and concerns that
were raised by the student body. He will be greatly missed.
