Dr. Tito Guerrero Leaving Pueblo

The Stephen F. Austin State University Board of Regents has selected Dr. Tito Guerrero III president of the Stephen F. Austin State University.

After 10 hours of interviews and discussion, regents voted unanimously to make Guerrero the seventh president of the university.

"This is a wonderful development," Guerrero said. "I look forward to working with each and every one of you to take this university to an even higher level."

Guerrero holds a bachelor of science degree in health education and biology from Texas A&M, a master's degree in education from the University of North Texas, and an educational doctorate degree with an emphasis on administration, planning and social policy from Harvard. He has received fellowships from the National Science Foundation, the Ford Foundation, Kellogg National Leadership and the Academic Leadership Academy.

As president of the University of Southern Colorado at Pueblo, Guerrero stemmed six consecutive years of enrollment decline, and under his leadership, the university experienced consecutive fall enrollment increases of nine percent and seven percent. He
raised $18 million in private fund raising during a three-year period and garnered $15 million in extramural funding this past year. Guerrero established an instructional technology center to provide development opportunities and curriculum support to faculty members. He initiated pre-kindergarten through master's degree partnerships and distance education collaborations involving 17 school districts, five community and junior colleges, and three four-year institutions.

The University of Southern Colorado is a member of the Colorado State University System. The 275-acre campus is located at Pueblo and enrolls 4,000 students in 29 undergraduate and six graduate programs with approximately 500 full-time faculty and staff.

Guerrero formerly served as provost and vice president for academic affairs at Texas A&M at Corpus Christi.

Guerrero and his wife, Lupe, have one daughter, a student at Trinity University in San Antonio.

Other candidates for the position were Jim Ferguson of Auburn, Ala., Joanne K. Glasser of Owings Mills, Md., Randall J. Webb of Natchitoches, La., and Walter V. Wendler of College Station, Texas. Wendler withdrew from the candidacy at SFA to accept a position as chancellor of Southern Illinois University at Carbondale.
