After four months on the job, Vice Chancellor for Student Life Vincent Carilli has decided it's time for some personnel changes within his division, according to a release he sent out Monday morning.
Three of the people who work most closely with students have been shuffled around, bolstering the Student Life staff.
Former Dean of Students Maxine Davis will now serve as assistant vice chancellor for Student Life. Her duties will include overseeing the Center for Health Education and Wellness, Office of Disability Services, Student Conduct and Community Standards, Student Counseling Center and the Student Health Center.
To fill Davis' recently vacated Dean of Students position, current Assistant Vice Chancellor Melissa Shivers will serve as the new Dean of Students. She will also work as the associate vice chancellor for Student Life, overseeing Career Services, the Center for Leadership and Service, New Student and Family Programs, Sorority and Fraternity Life, the Center for Student Engagement, Student Government and the Office of Student Media.
To fill Shivers' recently vacated Assistant Vice Chancellor position, current Housing Executive Director Frank Cuevas will serve as the new assistant vice chancellor for Student Life. Cuevas will maintain his position as executive director of University Housing, but now, as the assistant vice chancellor, he will assume oversight of the University Center and RecSports.
At the end of the release, Carilli announced that the Safety, Environment and Education Center will be renamed the Center for Health Education and Wellness; the new center looks to hire a health educator.
He also declared that the Student Activities Office will become the Center for Student Engagement, hiring an assistant director to work with student organizations and advisers.
The changes will take effect on June 1, 2014, and the memo did not explain why these changes are taking place.
