Michael Hindery ’76 came on board in July as vice president for finance and administration. He arrives at SCU from University of California, San Francisco, where he served as vice dean for administration, finance, and clinical programs—and before that, as senior associate dean for finance and administration at Stanford University School of Medicine. He’s also a rower, with a medal in the Pan American Games to his name. He takes the baton from Bob Warren, who retires in December. Warren has served the University since 1991, as director of Human Resources and then as vice president for finance and administration.

Lulu Santana M.A. ’97 took on responsibility as director of Campus Ministry in July. She’s been engaged in ministering to the Santa Clara community for 18 years already—as a resident minister and as associate director of Campus Ministry—and served as acting director of the marvelous Casa de la Solidaridad program in El Salvador. A grad of SCU’s program in pastoral ministries, she follows in the footsteps of Jack Treacy, S.J., ’77, Th.M. ’90, who is on sabbatical in Rome at present. If we can tear him away from the Eternal City, we look forward to welcoming Fr. Jack as part of the University Relations team next year.
