Vice Rector at A-State Mexico Campus Steps Down, Interim VR Announced
Thilla Sivakumaran (A-State)

Arkansas State University announced last week a change of leadership for Campus Queretaro: David Ray is stepping down as vice rector and Thilla Sivakumaran will take over in an interim capacity.

Ray joined A-State CQ in September 2018, and retired from his position in December 2019.

Sivakumaran, executive director of A-State's Global Engagement and Outreach Division, will serve as the interim vice rector while a search for a permanent vice rector is underway.

The vice rector position at Campus Queretaro provides oversight on academic programs for the Mexico campus. Sivakumaran will lead the A-State CQ academic mission by making monthly visits to the campus and by engaging virtually with Queretaro faculty and leadership on a weekly basis.
