Welcome President Cauce

Following a nationwide search, Dr. Ana Mari Cauce has been named president of the University of Washington. Many of you know President Cauce personally; her affiliation with the UW spans more than 30 years. President Cauce began as a faculty member and rose through the ranks to the position of provost. She was named interim president of the UW in March. She was one of UW Bothell’s earliest supporters and has been a champion for our campus throughout her tenure at the UW.  
I am pleased that the interests of UW Bothell were well represented on the search committee.  I was a member of the committee, along with NHS faculty member Selina Mohammed and ASUWB president Dominick Juarez. UW Bothell Chancellor Emeritus Kenyon Chan chaired the committee.
Congratulations, President Cauce. I look forward to our future collaboration.
