Fresno Pacific University welcomes back one of its own with the addition of Paul Micu as director of alumni and church relations.
In this role, which he began March 1, Micu will build supportive relationships for the university with graduates and members of the Pacific District Conference of the Mennonite Brethren Churches, which operates FPU, and other congregations.
"Paul is everything we want in this position," said Mark Deffenbacher, vice president of advancement and university relations. "His deep feeling for the university and the mission it shares with the denomination, combined with the skills he learned in the larger educational sphere, will help us create leaders in church and society."
Micu returns to FPU after four years as outreach coordinator for the University of California, where he promoted connections with middle schools, high schools and community colleges throughout the Valley. Prior to that Micu spent more than five years as an admissions counselor at FPU, where he was also a freshman mentor. He earned a bachelor's and master's degrees from the university. Micu's church work includes managing a traveling music ensemble and speaking to congregations, youth groups, camps and retreats.
