President Tiedens’ Legacy


My five years at Scripps have been the most rewarding of my professional career, and I will always cherish the lessons learned and relationships formed with so many Scripps students, staff, faculty, alumnae, families, trustees, donors, and friends.

Scripps has flourished under President Tiedens’ leadership and benefitted from her aptitude for building and strengthening institutions. She leaves Scripps in an enviable position with an inspiring vision for the future; exponential growth and investment in fast-growing STEM educational programs and infrastructure; a highly selective enrollment profile, and a prestigious reputation.
