Espinoza to lead human resource services

by Diana Pounds
Carla R. Espinoza will become assistant vice president for human resource services May 28. She is a partner and principal investigator with the personnel consulting firm Factfinders, Albuquerque, N.M.

"We're delighted that Espinoza has agreed to join Iowa State's human resource services office," said Warren Madden, vice president for business and finance. "She has strong and varied experience in the field of human resources, affirmative action and equal opportunity. We're looking forward to her leadership as we tackle several exciting challenges, including strengthening training and development programs for faculty and staff, developing new child care facilities and improving our benefits program and overall support for departments in the delivery of human resource services."

Before working for Factfinders, Espinoza directed the deparment of human resources at the University of New Mexico, Albuquerque. She also has served as assistant vice chancellor of affirmative action and equal opportunity office and adjunct lecturer at the University of California, Irvine; affirmative action compliance officer with the Los Angeles County department of health services; and personnel program manager and personnel analyst with the Los Angeles County personnel department.

She received the B.A. in English in 1971 from California State University, Northridge, and a master's degree in public administration in 1978 from California State University, Los Angeles.

The position of assistant vice president for human resource services was created last July when several areas were combined into the Office of Human Resource Services. The office encompasses responsibility for the Regents merit system, labor relations, employee benefits, child care, P&S classification, training and development, retirement advising and employee assistance programs.

Johnny Pickett, university controller and assistant vice president in business and finance, has led the human resource services office during the search.
