De’Awn will report directly to the Associate Vice Chancellor/Associate Vice President for Student Affairs, serve on the Division of Student Affairs Marketing and Communications committee, and participate in the Senior Leadership Team meetings.  Her office will eventually be located in Oberhaltzer Hall with the Residence Life & Housing and Auxiliary Services marketing team.  In the short term, you can reach De’Awn in the Office of the Vice Chancellor/Vice President for Student Affairs at 743-5390 and you can contact Patricia Magdaleno to schedule an appointment with her during her transition time into her new office space.

I will be asking Patricia to set up some initial meetings with a number of individuals across campus in the next few weeks so that De’Awn can learn more about your programs and services.  In addition, please help me thank Lawrence Daniel and the entire search committee for their hard work, leadership and commitment."

All my best.
