UNM Los Alamos branch has new executive director

by Associated Press

The University of New Mexico’s Los Alamos branch has a new executive director.

The school announced Wednesday the appointment of Cedric Page, who had been serving as dean of instruction at the branch since January.

Page succeeds Carlos Ramirez, who has been executive director of the branch for 17 years.

Page said he’ll be assessing education and training needs at the school while acclimating to his new role, which is effective July 1.

“It is important to me to be a good listener and to spend as much time as possible listening to and collaborating with students, faculty, staff and the many stakeholders from the communities of northern New Mexico.”

UNM-Los Alamos, designated as a Hispanic-serving institution, draws students from throughout north-central New Mexico.

Page came to the Los Alamos campus from Washington state, where he was dean of faculty and senior vice president for academic affairs at the DigiPen Institute of Technology in Redmond.

He earned a bachelor’s degree in cartography and physical geography from Syracuse University, a master’s in quantitative and urban geography from Rutgers University and a doctorate in urban and social geography from Rutgers. He also studied management at Harvard University.

He has been executive director of the Center for Social Responsibility and Community at Suny College in Oneonta, N.Y., and an associate professor of urban affairs and geography from the University of Colorado at Denver. He also taught geography at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs.
