UCSF Dentistry Dean John D.B. Featherstone announces that James Betbeze has been named Assistant Dean of Enrollment Management and Outreach for the UCSF School of Dentistry, effective May 1, 2012.
Betbeze has been with the School for five years, and during which time he has transformed the admissions process and extended the School's outreach efforts throughout the state. Says Featherstone: "I know that many of you have enjoyed working with James on the extensive review and selection process, and on these outreach projects. It is very rewarding to know that our dental students today are even more accomplished and diverse than those of five years ago."
Betbeze received his BA degree in Anthropology from UC Berkeley, a Masters in Public Administration from SFSU, and is nearing completion of his EdD degree in Educational Leadership from UC Davis. Prior to coming to the School of Dentistry, he managed the admissions process of the UCSF School of Pharmacy for seven years, and served for five years as a Student Affairs Officer for undergraduate and graduate students at UC Berkeley.
Adds the Dean: "We will benefit greatly from James' expertise and leadership in this area. Please join me in congratulating him on his appointment."
