Posted March 22, 2000

Alex Saragoza has been appointed University of California systemwide vice president for educational outreach, UC President Richard Atkinson announced March 16.

"Dr. Saragoza's broad cultural background and ability both as an academic and as an administrator will be of great benefit to the university's crucial outreach program," Atkinson said.

"He is a man of deep understanding and appreciation of our large and complex state and the promise it holds for the future."
