A message from Associate Dean for Student Affairs Chris Marx:

"I am delighted to inform you that Aida Ten, Registrar ad interim, has accepted the offer to become Registrar! Our search committee conducted a national search, and Aida was our unanimous choice. Aida received her B.S. degree in Interdisciplinary Studies from Boston University. She was a staff coordinator for our First-Year Writing and Advocacy Program, and joined our Registrar's Office in 1997 as associate registrar. Aida served as assistant director for our Graduate Tax Program, and then rejoined the Registrar's Office as associate registrar in 2002. Most recently, Aida has served with great distinction as our registrar ad interim, and has very effectively juggled the demands of two difficult jobs since Mary Jo Sullivan's departure in November. Aida consistently has demonstrated superb customer service skills, attention to detail, and dedication to the School. We are confident that Aida will continue and expand upon the excellent services offered by the Registrar's Office. Please join me in congratulating Aida and thanking her for her great work."
