Dear University of Arizona Community,

I am pleased to announce that Alissa Bilfield has accepted the interim role of director of the McGuire Center for Entrepreneurship, replacing Vice Dean of Faculty and Research Stan Reynolds, effective immediately.

Alissa earned her PhD in public health from Tulane University and also holds a graduate degree in environment and development from the London School of Economics and a bachelor's in political science from Vanderbilt University. She joined the McGuire Center for Entrepreneurship as a lecturer in 2018. Her interests include sustainability, food systems and health innovation, supply chain transparency and inclusive entrepreneurship. Her interdisciplinary background includes work and research in the government, nonprofit and academic sectors that has spanned the United States and 14 different countries, ranging from Guatemala to Sri Lanka.

Alissa is also a social entrepreneur herself, having co-founded a food literacy and cooking education nonprofit called The Cookbook Project. I am confident that her ideas, drive and passion for entrepreneurship will to be an asset to us in this role.

Please join me in congratulating Alissa.
