Fielding Graduate University to Honor Retiring President

Dr. Judith Kuipers will be feted by university for her service and lengthy career

Fielding Graduate University President Dr. JJudith L. Kuipers, who is retiring in June, will be honored Thursday for her nine years of service to the university and her distinguished career in higher education.

The reception will take place from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Sara Miller McCune Garden at Fielding’s headquarters, 2112 Santa Barbara St. Among the guests will be members of the community and leaders in education, as well as Fielding staff, students, alumni and faculty.

During the reception, a sculpture that was commissioned by Fielding’s Board of Trustees to honor Kuipers’ legacy will be unveiled to the public. Santa Barbara artist MacLean Tiffany was commissioned to create the artwork, taking inspiration from Kuipers’ career and incorporating symbols of academic excellence, knowledge and servant leadership.

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!
