Texas A&M University-Commerce recently appointed Dina M. Sosa to the position of Interim Dean of Enrollment, Management and Retention. Texas A&M System Chancellor John Sharp approved the request, and A&M-Commerce’s recommendation of Sosa for Dean will be submitted for approval at the July Board of Regents meeting.
“We are so pleased to welcome Dina Sosa to our university family,” said Vice President of Student Access and Success Dr. Mary Hendrix. “Dean Sosa brings the care and compassion for students for which our university is known, coupled with an extensive background in the field of enrollment, management and retention.”
