Espinoza to begin phased retirement

Carla Espinoza has announced her plans to enter phased retirement by Jan. 1, 2012. Espinoza has served as ISU's associate vice president for human resource services and director of equal opportunity and compliance for the past 15 years.

Vice president for business and finance Warren Madden has appointed a 12-member search committee chaired by associate vice president for business and finance Pam Elliott Cain. He said he expects to name Espinoza's successor by the end of the calendar year.

Espinoza's focus during a two-year phased period will be on leading and coordinating Iowa State's participation in the development of the Kuali People Management project, an open-source human resources/payroll software system being built by higher education partners specifically for higher education.
