McRobbie announces new IU East chancellor

Pending Board of Trustees approval, current California State University Monterey Bay Provost Kathryn Cruz-Uribe will assume chancellorship at IU-East Richmond, University President Michael McRobbie announced Thursday.

The chancellor is the lead administrator at IU-East.

Cruz-Uribe will succeed Nasser Paydar, who left IU-East to become the executive vice chancellor of IU-Purdue University Indianapolis.

In addition to her duties at California State University Monterey Bay, Cruz-Urbine served at Northern Arizona University from 1989 to 2007, according to a press release.

“I look forward to the opportunity to lead the continued development of the region’s campus of choice for four-year and master’s education, and to collaborate with colleagues throughout the state as we work to improve educational attainment in the state of Indiana,” Cruz-Uribe said in the release.
