As most of you know, Dean Larry Dow is retiring from Trinity at the end of 2014 and he will be greatly missed by all- especially his Admissions and Financial Aid staff. Recently, Angel Perez was announced as the new head of our offices with the title of Vice President of Enrollment and Student Success. Although we will miss Larry’s leadership, we look forward to working with Angel in the years to come.
The following is an excerpt from President Berger-Sweeney’s official email announcement:
“Angel has spent the last eight years at Pitzer College, one of the seven highly selective Claremont Colleges. At Pitzer, Angel led an 18-member team, and under his leadership Pitzer received the highest number of applications, the highest yield, and the lowest admit rate in its history. Just as important, he was a leader among leaders, forming strong working partnerships with the offices of student affairs, academic affairs, international programs, athletics, and institutional research—a collaborative quality that is essential as Trinity moves forward. Prior to joining Pitzer in 2007, Angel was Associate Dean of Admission and Financial Aid at Claremont McKenna College, also within the Claremont Colleges, where he served since 2004. He also served as a college counselor and head of a community-based organization in New York City, helping first-generation students apply to college. Angel earned a B.S. from Skidmore College, an M.A. from Columbia University, and a Ph.D., expected this year, from Claremont Graduate University. He is the recipient of a Fulbright Fellowship, among other distinctions, and is the author of numerous articles. You can read more about his background at http://angelbperez.com/.”
Thank you, Larry, for all the years that you have devoted to this community.
