Dr. France A. Cordova, President of a major U.S. University and pioneering Hispanic woman, was named 11th president of Purdue University in May of this year. Becoming the first Hispanic woman to lead the West Lafayette, Indiana campus, she plans to "Embrace Diversity". Cordova became the first Hispanic woman to ever lead a University of California campus in 2002. She was was instrumental in establishing numerous diversity programs at UC Riverside. Her efforts were both noticed and appreciated at Riverside, where Academic Senate Chair Thomas Cogswell complimented her for encouraging diversity without sacrificing student success.

During her tenure at the University of California, Dr.Cordova created the position of associate vice-provost for faculty equity and diversity which focused on bringing in more women and minorities onto the faculty. Ms. Cordova has learned that having a student body and faculty with a wide range of backgrounds, cultures, and experiences is critical in providing a top-quality education.
