Barely a foot in the door of McMicken Hall and a staff member welcomed Dick Friedman with a bear hug and big "Welcome Home!" Dick started his UC career at McMicken College as an Assistant Dean. He served the College from 1972-1988 in numerous positions including Director of the McMicken Honors Program (now the UC Honors Program), Pre-Medicine Adviser, Medical School Admissions Committee member, and Student Affairs advocate.

His student-oriented commitment to UC led him to a higher calling when he decided to leave McMicken College and accept a position in the president's office. As Special Assistant to the President for the past 14 years, Dick has served as the personal designate for the President on numerous committees both within and outside of the university including currently serving as Co-chair of the Hillel Jewish Student Center Foundation Community Advisory Board and Vice Chair of the Hoxworth Blood Center Advisory Board.

Dick's dedication to McMicken students has obviously had an impact on both him and his students. This July, Dick returned to McMicken as Senior Assistant Dean, and Director of Alumni Relations. His former students are now successful doctors, lawyers, educators and business people. He hopes he can re-connect and reinforce strong connections with these alumni. McMicken is proud to have Dick Friedman back in the family.
