Visionary passes

MUG_BAUERJim Bauer, who worked as the senior associate dean of enrollment management and the executive director of the Office of Financial Assistance Services for 13 years,  passed away  Monday.

Bauer fought a long and valiant battle with cancer and passed away while in hospice care at the University of Miami Hospital.

As the longtime head of financial aid, he was known to always put students first, and his caring and sense of fairness benefitted thousands of UM students.

He was nationally recognized as a visionary in the field of financial assistance and enrollment management after a long, distinguished career.

“He was a true professional, a key player and leader in the ambitious climb in rankings of the University,” President Donna E. Shalala said in a statement. “More than anything else, he had a soft heart in a tough job.”

He is survived by his wife Lois, a member of the registrar’s office, and three daughters.
