Eloise Stiglitz Named Vice President for Student Affairs at CSUSM
California State University San Marcos (CSUSM) President Karen Haynes announced today that Eloise Stiglitz, Ph.D. has been named vice president for student affairs.
Dr. Stiglitz, associate vice president for student affairs at San Jose State University (SJSU), will assume her new role on July 1, 2010.
Haynes initiated a nationwide search for a new vice president last fall after Dr. Patricia Worden announced her retirement. Worden has been vice president for student affairs since 2005. Stiglitz was chosen from a field of more than 80 applicants and was among the finalists who visited CSUSM this spring for interviews with members of the university community.
"I am delighted to be joining CSUSM at this time in its history and I'm honored to serve under President Haynes, a visionary leader with incredible passion and commitment," commented Stiglitz. "I am excited about the many opportunities that lie ahead for the University, the Division of Student Affairs and CSUSM's exceptional students."
Stiglitz currently serves as the associate vice president for student affairs at San Jose State University (SJSU), a position she has held for five years. She brings with her nearly three decades of administrative experience in a variety of student affairs areas at both public and private institutions. Previously, Stiglitz was the dean of student affairs at Rutgers University from 2002 to 2005 and held the positions of assistant dean of students/interim director of the office of student life and leadership and director of the counseling center at Georgia State University from 1994 to 2002. She received her Ph.D. and M.S. in clinical psychology from Purdue University, and holds a B.A. from Indiana University.
"We are fortunate to have someone of Dr. Stiglitz's ability and devotion to students fill this critical post," said Dr. Haynes. "She is clearly among the ablest of her peers nationally and leads from a wealth of experience, bringing wonderful personal energy into her work. Moreover, with her five years of experience at SJSU, she has an outstanding grasp of the CSU system and the intricacies of the California public higher education system. This is an excellent match for Cal State San Marcos."
