The Division of Student Affairs has made organizational changes to make use of important student-driven themes. The reorganization is tied directly to implementing initiatives from Marquette’s strategic plan, mission and Jesuit values. Initiative themes include fostering mission integration, enhancing student well-being, nurturing a strong and healthy student residential experience, appreciating community diversity, and fostering inclusion.
The reorganization includes the following key changes:
- Dr. Jeff Janz will serve as associate vice president for student affairs effective Sunday, Jan. 1. The associate vice president will oversee a student well-being team and provide supervision for the director of the Counseling Center, director of recreational sports, executive director of the Medical Clinic, director of music programs, director of the Alumni Memorial Union and a dotted line in supervision of the director of alcohol and other drug prevention programs.
- A search process has begun to fill the position of assistant vice president for student affairs. This position will oversee leadership development, division assessment efforts, mission integration, and multicultural/intercultural engagement program development and implementation. As part of mission integration, the new assistant vice president will also oversee the assistant to the vice president and the director of community service (now a distinct unit within student affairs) as well as the Office of Intercultural Engagement.
- The executive leadership team has been created to enhance the voice of several smaller units previously known together as the Office of Student Development. The units that will now serve in a more autonomous capacity are the director of campus activities and student involvement, associate dean for student conduct, assistant dean for new student and family programs and director of community service.
