Dear Alumni and Friends,
In this issue of the I-House Connection, I am pleased to announce the appointment of Nayeli Vivanco as Vice President to lead the Robertson Center for Intercultural Leadership and Programs (CILP), our center of excellence for training to advance leadership, understanding, and collaboration across cultures. On a personal note, I have known Nayeli for almost a decade, and I am excited that she has decided to join the I-House team. Her personal and professional journey are the embodiment of the I-House mission, and I am confident that Nayeli will bring fresh ideas and a unique perspective to this important role.
I’d also like to share an update on our Front of House Restoration project and invite you to enjoy reviewing our updated booklet International House Berkeley – An Extraordinary History. Finally, the Staff Spotlight in this issue is on Manita Rana Magar, Resident Engagement Coordinator of the I-House Program Office.
