It is with a heavy heart that we let our alumni know of Dr. Pamela S. Clute’s passing on Sunday, August 21, 2016. Clute, who held three degrees from UCR, a Bachelors of Arts in Mathematics earned in 1971, a Master’s in Education earned in 1978 and Ph.D. in Education earned in 1982, was a pioneer of STEM education. She served on the UCR Alumni Association Board of Directors from 1989-1998, and then again from 2014-2015. She was an assistant vice chancellor emerita and UCR foundation trustee. After retiring from UCR last year, she went on to continue her long-time work with educators throughout Southern California. She is survived by her husband, former California Assemblyman Steve Clute, of Palm Desert.
