ASA Congratulates Havidán and Gary!
ASA congratulates Havidán Rodríguez, former Director of the ASA Minority Affairs Program, for taking on a new high-ranking administrative role at the newly named University of Texas-Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV). Havidán recently was named Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs at UTRGV, a new university formed from the consolidation of UT-Pan American (UTPA) and UT-Brownsville. He is currently serving as the Interim President at UTPA, where he began in 2011 as Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs and as a tenured professor in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology. During 2014–15 he will continue to serve as Interim President at UTPA while also serving in his new role at UTRGV, which will open its doors in the fall of 2015.
ASA also congratulates Gary Sandefur, a former ASA MFP Fellow (Cohort 1), on being named Provost and Senior Vice President of Academic Affairs at Oklahoma State University (OSU), where he will also hold the title Professor of Sociology. Originally from Madill, OK, and a member of the Chickasaw Nation, Gary has spent the past 30 years on the faculty at the University of Wisconsin-Madison where he served as Dean of Letters and Science from 2004-13. Before joining Wisconsin, he was Assistant Professor of Sociology at the University of Oklahoma from 1978-84.
