RE:      Changes in Enrollment Management and Student Affairs

 

In order to elevate the significance of student recruitment, retention, and marketing, the following changes in staffing are effective immediately:

  • Dr. Lisa Goodnight, Vice Chancellor for Institutional Advancement will also serve as the Interim Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs;
  • Elizabeth Babcock Depew, Director of Managerial Accounting, will serve as the Interim Executive Associate Vice Chancellor for Enrollment Management, reporting directly to me;
  • Julie Wiejak, Senior Executive Assistant to the Chancellor for Strategic Initiatives will serve as the Interim Executive Director of Undergraduate Admissions.
  • Catharine Olsen, Executive Assistant to the Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, will serve as the Interim Senior Executive Assistant to the Chancellor for Strategic Initiatives.

These strategic structural changes will provide an opportunity to assess and evaluate our processes and procedures as well as develop a path forward to ensure positive student outcomes.
