President Jane Close Conoley sent out an email 4:40 p.m. Monday confirming Mary Ann Takemoto as the Interim Vice President for Student Affairs.
“This decision comes in the wake of Vice President Carmen Taylor’s separation from her position with the campus today,” Conoley said in the email.

University officials told the Daily 49er that they were looking into whether the two were connected.
