Thunderbird's statement on Cabrera's move to Mason [DOCUMENT]

Thunderbird School of Global Management released a statement Thursday morning congratulating its current president Ángel Cabrera on his new position as George Mason University's sixth university president.

The statement, signed from Ann Iverson, chair of the school’s Board of Trustees, comments on the “indelible mark” he has left upon the Glendale, Arizona school of international business. It also gives an overview of successes the school has seen under Cabrera's leadership, which began in 2004.

Academic Advising and Transfer Centers combine

Earlier this semester the Academic Advising Center, which assists students with declaring a major and registering for classes, combined with the Transfer Center to form one organization.

The Academic Advising & Transfer Center (ATC) is now one academic unit housed within Student Academic Affairs, Advising & Retention.

“[We] expanded the number of people who can service students,” said Virginia Lewis, assistant dean for Student Academic Affairs, Advising, & Retention.
