Vice president for finance named

By Dan Heuchert

Yoke San L. Reynolds, one of Cornell University's top financial officers, has been named U.Va.'s vice president for finance. Reynolds joins the University at the end of May, following an eight-month search to fill the newly created position.

Reynolds will manage U.Va.'s primary financial operations --including human resources; financial administration, such as general accounting and sponsored-programs administration; business operations; business analysis; and risk management. She also will take part in financial compliance efforts, the setting of financial and administrative policies, and institutional planning efforts.

She will report to Leonard W. Sandridge, executive vice president and chief operating officer, and serve on President John T. Casteen III's cabinet with other vice presidents and senior staff members. Full story.

Principal, faculty chosen to staff new International Residential College

By Charlotte Crystal

Brad Brown, associate professor at the McIntire School of Commerce has been tapped to lead the new International Residential College, set to open next fall.

For several years, students who wanted to immerse themselves in a foreign language and culture could live in one of four language houses scattered around Grounds -- Maison Française, Casa Bolivar, Max Kade Deutsches Haus and Russki Dom.

But students who would rather dip their toes into foreign cultures, without jumping in over their heads, have had limited options -- until now.

"We'll talk to any student with international interests, not just those pursuing area studies," said Brown who has been named principal of the new residential college. "We'd like to bring in a broad range of people with diverse enthusiasms and different levels of experience." Full story.
