An academic prophet in our own land: Welcome Ana Mari Cauce
The University of Washington is an educational jewel of innovation, research and development, economic activity and community engagement. The University and our state needs and deserves world-class leadership.
The selection by the Board of Regents of Interim President Ana Mari Cauce to the permanent position of president of the University of Washington is a pitch perfect connection with the values, civic engagement and educational passions of Washington State. She’s the right person at the right place at the right time in our state’s civic life. So many of us were Cauce before Cauce was cool. She understands the nuance of relationships, the depth of academic rigor and the values of students and community.
And I’m not just saying this because my first born is a newly-minted, freshman Husky this year. Perhaps.
Mazal tov and welcome to the presidency of the University of Washington!
