Message from the President
"For those of us whose lives revolve around private higher education in California, we can truly say that we live in interesting times. That certainly has been true for the past several years here at Notre Dame de Namur University, interesting and exciting." Read more of President Judith Maxwell Greig's letter.
The appointment of Dr. Greig, who had been acting president since January 2008, culminated a year-long search for a permanent president for the University. In the course of the search, the committee and outside consultants reviewed the resumes of more than 50 potential candidates from all over the country, and ultimately invited four finalists to campus for meetings with faculty, staff and students.
Dr. Greig has served NDNU as an Assistant Professor, Professor, and Dean of the School of Education and Leadership, Interim Vice President of Finance and Administration, Interim Vice President of Development, and Provost as well as Acting President. As a faculty member she served on numerous governance committees and was President of the Faculty Senate for three years from 1996-1999. She holds a BA from Wheaton College, an MA from Santa Clara University, a second MA and a Ph.D. from Stanford University.
Before coming to NDNU in 1988, Dr. Greig was a lecturer at San Jose State University and elementary and middle school teacher. Her chief academic and research interests are in understanding and facilitating how teaching and learning occur and in early literacy.
