The University of Texas at El Paso announced the appointment of Sandy Vasquez as the associate vice president for human resources effective Sept. 17, 2018.
Vasquez will be responsible for developing and sustaining progressive and responsive human resource policies, programs and services for more than 3,000 faculty and staff members. She will oversee programs such as recruitment, compensation, immigration, benefits administration, training and development, employee relations and computer systems support.
“I am thrilled to have Ms. Sandy Vasquez join human resources as the associate vice president,” said Mark McGurk, vice president for business affairs. “The cumulative breadth of experience in her previous roles as assistant vice president for equal opportunity and compliance services, chief compliance and ethics officer and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) coordinator, as well as her continued responsibilities as Title IX coordinator, have prepared her well to serve in this capacity. Sandy is well known across campus and has established many working relationships that will allow her to step into this role and be effective immediately.”
Victor Pacheco, Ph.D., served as the interim vice president for human resources for nearly two years. He will continue to serve as assistant vice president for business affairs.
“His leadership has been instrumental in the continuous improvement and positive actions that the department has undertaken during his watch,” McGurk said.
Vasquez is a certified compliance and ethics professional, and she recently celebrated her 24th anniversary with UTEP. Since 2007, she has served as the assistant vice president for equal opportunity and compliance services, ADA coordinator and Title IX coordinator.
“I look forward to continuing to work with the faculty, staff and students to provide the best service possible to support the University’s goals of access and excellence,” Vasquez said.
