Way overdue here is congratulations to veteran Malcsista Rusty Barcelo, newly appointed Vice President and Vice Provost for Equity and Diversity at the University of Minnesota. Her office oversees Disability Services, Equal Opportunity & Affirmative Action, the GLBT Programs Office, the Multicultural Center, and the Office for University Women.
After five years at the University of Washington, Rusty is returning to familiar territory. From 1996 to 2001, she served as Minnesota’s associate vice president for multicultural and academic affairs; two of those years, she also chaired the Chicano studies department on the Twin Cities campus. A grants program for collaborative multicultural projects was established in 2002 and named in her honor.

Finally, kudos to Dr. Rocio Delgado, Assistant Professor of Education at Trinity University in San Antonio, TX who has finished her UT Austin dissertation (title?). She is beginning her second year at Trinity University.
Trinity is also fortunate to have recent hires Rosana Blanco-Cano (Ph.D. Tulane University) and Debra Ochoa (Ph.D. University of Texas at Austin), joining the Department of Modern Languages. Rosana researches Spanish-American literature and culture, and Debra works on twentieth century Spanish Peninsular Literature/Film and Spanish Women Writers.
