Rouse graduated from Westmont in 1977, earned her master’s degree from USC, then worked at Westmont as a resident director, director of residence life and associate dean of students from 1981-98.

“Teri reflects the high caliber of our alumni, and I expect her to serve with distinction,” President Gayle Beebe said.

Rouse, who served as executive director of Life Network Pregnancy Care Center before working at the YMCA, will replace Mary Given, who accepted a position of associate vice president of alumni and church relations at Fuller Theological Seminary. Rouse begins her new job at Westmont on Sept. 15.

“She has the experience, education, gifts and passion for advancing the mission of Westmont and for working with an incredibly special group of individuals: the Westmont alumni and parents,” Executive Vice President Cliff Lundberg said.

“I am excited to be a part of the broader mission of Westmont, which alumni live out every day throughout the world,” Rouse says “I love finding creative and meaningful ways for people to share resources and talents. The possibilities for these kinds of connections among faculty, staff, alums and parents are endless.”

Rouse says she will bring her decade of insight and knowledge working at two local nonprofits to Westmont. “I believe I have a deeper understanding of some of the important issues of our day, particularly those facing our youth,” she says. “I strongly believe Westmont is a local treasure with the capacity to serve, have influence and make a difference right in its own backyard.”

Scott Craig is Westmont College‘s media relations manager.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
