    It is always good to see a person of color move up in the administrative ranks at universities across the US. This brings to the table a voice which may have similar but yet different experiences and perspectives to share that brings more individuals of color to the university as students, faculty and administrators. Of course then a critical mass can be reached that adds a more well rounded perspective across all levels of the educational process.
