From the Director
In this issue of Noticias I wish to acknowledge and commend the people who work for the Center for Mexican Americans Studies.
The success of any organization relies upon those who implement the day-to-day tasks comprising the organization’s mission. CMAS has been very fortunate throughout its forty-year history to have employed people who feel they are advancing the educational status of the community. They are essential to the Center’s existence through their professional handling of scholarship checks, travel vouchers, personnel forms, mailings, appointments, class and travel schedules, leaflets, financial forms, rosters, reservations, printing, meetings, phones, ordering office supplies, out-of-town guests, etc. In fact, when the Center was last audited, the state auditors said we were a relatively small unit that processed an unusual amount of information in a very efficient manner–the best in the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences. This is a tribute to all of the people who work for CMAS.
What follows are brief comments about the staff and their responsibilities.
Tatcho Mindiola, Ph.D., Director
