Vice President of Student Services Screening Committee
Counseling Chair, management experience, recognized by faculty peers as someone with experience and willing to speak their minds even if it is a minority opinion.
Athletics representation, an important part of VPSS. Also, recognizes that basketball practice/commitments may impact ability to serve. This type of conflict should be examined early in the process. If there is an unavoidable conflict, Lyndon Schutzler will serve instead.
ARC (Access Resource Center), familiar with challenges of categorical funding and efforts to serve the underrepresented and those least able to navigate the complex pathways of academia. Jacque is also a somewhat new faculty, a group that we think is important to serve on these types of committees.
English, instructional faculty, has served on the basic skills committee for many years and is familiar with the types of services supported by Student Services.
