LOS ANGELES --(Business Wire)--

of space. Stauffer will also serve as the Accreditation Liaison officer
with WASC and will assist the provost's office in managing personnel
processes and in developing instructional plans and budgets.
"Randy is known as a consensus builder, a thoughtful, even-handed,
persistent and knowledgeable professional," said David P. Dauwalder,
Ph.D, Executive Vice Presidet and Provost, Woodbury University. "His
consistent ability to find agreeable solutions in difficult situations
