Graduate Studies dean selected

Teresita E. AguilarUNM Provost Brian L. Foster recently announced the appointment of Teresita E. Aguilar as dean of Graduate Studies, effective Sept. 1, 2002.

She will succeed Professor of Communication and Journalism Kenneth D. Frandsen, former associate dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, who has held the position on an interim basis since Oct. 16, 2000.

For the past two years, Aguilar has been associate dean of the College of Education and Integrative Studies and a professor in the Department of Ethnic and Women’s Studies at California Polytechnic Univ., Pomona, Calif.

“Professor Aguilar has an impressive record of experience in academic administrative positions. She has been on the faculty and active in graduate education at two peer research universities. She also brings significant strengths in the areas of diversity, teacher and multicultural education and understanding race and ethnicity. We look forward to working with her,” Foster said.

“I am very pleased to have been selected for this leadership position. Graduate study, by design, should be the most rewarding educational experience in higher education. I look forward to collaborating with and supporting the UNM graduate faculty and students within and across colleges. I also look forward to working with my new administrative colleagues and with the staff in the Office of Graduate Studies as we seek ways to enhance our resource base, external visibility and internal operations,” Aguilar said.
