President’s Message 2013–2014
Dear SAR Scholars, Supporters, and Family Members:
James F. Brooks has stepped down as president to write what I expect will be another award-winning book, and John Kantner has accepted an important university vice presidency in Florida. Two colleagues with their levels of talent will be sorely missed.David E. Stuart
As a consequence, SAR’s Board of Directors sought an interim president who was already a member of the SAR family to preside over this transition, in a steady-as-you-go mode, even as this period is exploited to refine and enhance several of our long-held core missions. After decades of teaching and senior administrative work at the University of New Mexico, I am delighted to have this opportunity to enjoy SAR’s continuing jewel-like qualities at close range and on a daily basis.
This institution is sound, its mission intact, and its future is bright. The Board of Directors has begun planning a national search for a permanent president. As that process takes place, I invite you to be in touch. Ask questions or make suggestions as you please.
