Flores, the SEO interim director, has served previously in associate director, project director and coordinator positions in SEO since 2000. Before that, she held positions at the University of New Mexico-Taos.

A screening committee, chaired by Noah Buckley, UW admissions director, narrowed the pool of applicants and identified strengths and challenges for the top candidates.
