Scripps College Leadership Transition Plan

Posted: July 5, 2016

Dear Scripps College Students, Faculty, and Staff,

As we prepare for the arrival of President-elect Tiedens, who will join the College on August 1, I would like to inform you about the leadership transition plan for the next 30 days.

Amy Marcus-Newhall will serve as interim president through the month of July. She will return to her prior position as vice president for academic affairs and dean of faculty on August 1.

Julie Liss, currently the interim vice president for academic affairs and dean of faculty, will continue in that role through July and begin a much deserved year-long sabbatical on August 1.

Again, I’d like to thank Amy and Julie for their strong and steadfast leadership during the presidential search period and I know they will offer their full support to President-elect Tiedens as she starts her service to the College. We all look forward to continuing to work with them as they resume their prior roles.


Mark R. Herron
Chair, Board of Trustees
