On Feb. 1, Dr. Eloise Stiglitz joined Mills College’s staff as the new Vice President of Student Life.
Stiglitz is coming to Mills from California State University, San Marcos, where she was the Vice President of Student Affairs.
After Dr. Joi Lewis, former Vice President of Student Life, left Mills in 2012, her position was held by interim Dean of Students, Dr. Kathleen Rice.
Now that Stiglitz has secured the permanent position, she said she hopes to promote student engagement, development and leadership through the office Division of Student Life.
President Alecia DeCoudreaux welcomed Stiglitz to the Mills community through an email on Jan. 24.
“Dr. Stiglitz brings to Mills experience and interests that make her an excellent addition to our community,” DeCoudreaux said. “Her background blends years of leadership in student services, experience as a licensed clinical psychologist, and a passion for women’s leadership and community development.”
Stiglitz said she always wanted to work at a women’s college.
“The values and mission all fit with who I am,” she said, noting her interest in women’s issues, the college’s progressive graduate programs and student interest in social justice development on and off campus.
The Division of Student Life will be hosting an open house on Feb. 12 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. for students to meet with Stiglitz.
