The Division of Student Affairs has been undergoing departmental changes recently.
New appointments have been coming into the office and employees who have previously worked at the department are receiving promotions and moving into different positions.
With certain staff members leaving and being moved to different departments, it was important to fill these positions as they began to open up.
Dr. Andy Morgan is now the recently new Interim Vice President for Student Affairs at Indiana State University. He started his new position in June.
Kristen Kardas joined Indiana State University as the Director of Fraternity and Sorority Life. Corry Smith was previously the Assistant Director of Fraternity and Sorority life, but has since changed his title to the Associate Director of Fraternity and Sorority Life.
Craig Enyeart is now the Interim Associate Dean of Students and Student Conduct through June 30, 2020.
Amanda Hobson was hired as the interim Dean of Students after previously being the Assistant Dean of Students. She played a big role in the Women’s Resource Center and after she accepted her new position, the Women’s Resource Center became part of the Office of Multicultural Services.
Several other changes have taken place in the office of the Division of Student Affairs. They also have some new projects in the works.
“We’re going to start preparing for the health and wellness fee that was voted on by students. The Board of Trustees approved a fee of $40 to go towards the health and wellness here at Indiana State University. We’re working on how we are going to spend that money. We’re thinking about how many counselors we’re going to hire and how many staff we are going to hire to teach students and staff how to live a healthier lifestyle,” said Dr. Morgan.
Another exciting change coming to this department is that they are in the early process of moving their office into the Student Union.
“Our goal is to help students be successful here at ISU. It’s important that students have a sense of belonging so that they can grow as a person both mentally and socially. Having that support helps a person to grow. When you know people care about you, it makes getting through the hard times easier,” said Dr. Morgan.
