    MIGS President/Chancellor Armando Arias seems to have sailed through the controversy with flying colors. He had been put on administrative leave by his 'day job' at Cal State University Monterey Bay, and they had said he would probably just rejoin the faculty, not as an administrator.

    But as of today, Sept. 2, 2002, he is listed as Dean of the Social and Behavioral Science Center at CSUMB.

    Aren't positions like that sometimes rotated? I figured he was due to step back and be a full-time faculty member. Anyway, I'm not surprised that all is forgotten/forgiven. The activities of MIGS--especially, too, Arias' limited role--don't seem to add up to much compared to the mission of CSU. And they paid a price to get him (from Texas A&M, IIRC). I'm sure they're glad that the MIGS thing didn't amount to much in the way of bad publicity, and are glad it's blown over.
