According to a recent email blast, it was announced that Columbia won’t hire anybody to be new Dean of Undergraduate Student Affairs for Columbia College and SEAS. Instead, Deans Valentini and Boyce opted to restructure the department to provide “the best experience” for undergraduates. After the changes, Community Development and its associated offices will become […]
You, too, can have input on our new Dean of Undergraduate Student Affairs, according to an email just sent out by Deantini and Dean Boyce. Win the lottery, abide by “confidentiality requirements,” and help Storbeck and PrezBo narrow it down next Tuesday and Friday. The academic headhunters Storbeck/Pimentel and Associates began the search to replace Ke$ho (and interim dean Terry […]
In early November, Deantini and Dean Boyce announced that they had hired executive search firm Storbeck/Pimentel & Associates to recruit the new Dean of Student Affairs. Thanks to the magic of the FOIA request, Bwog reported that as of 2007, Storbeck will charge at least $75,000 for the privilege. A couple days ago, Bwog got […]
In early November, Deans Valentini and Boyce announced that they’d be replacing KSho with a candidate selected by the academic-admin-headhunter-pros at Storbeck/Pimentel & Associates. (As it happens, they’re the same people that situated KSho at JHop.) While there is a student committee to aid the search, this outside help is a new twist on the […]
Senior Staff Writer Sarah Faith Thompson reports: At a Student Affairs meeting earlier this afternoon, Terry Martinez, Interim Dean of Student Affairs, announced that she does not intend to seek the permanent dean position. Once the national search provides a suitable replacement, she said that she would be happier to continue on in the role […]
Events Editor and Senior Staff Writer Sarah Faith Thompson has delved into places unknown, into places unseen, into places that maybe you didn’t actually know existed on campus. As we prepare for a new dean search, we sent her to figure out exactly what the Dean of Student Affairs does. Her report on the Office […]
In an email early this summer, Interim Dean of Student Affairs Terry Martinez announced some administrative reshuffling: Student Development and Activities and the Office of Civic Action and Engagement would be merged into a new office, called the Office of Student Engagement. That’ll be under Associate Dean of Student Affairs Todd Smith-Bergollo. Also included in the email […]
Every year, you pay over $1,300 in student life fees. You’re probably wondering where this money ends up. Bwog has already determined that most of it doesn’t go to Lerner Pub, ponchos, or the New York Times. So what does it go to? Thanks to CCSC all of our wonderful student councils, the administration has […]
Two of Columbia’s major websites have just received extreme makeovers – the SEAS site, whose color scheme and photo-of-new-dean remind visitors of Columbia College, and the Student Affairs site (shown above), which reminds the administration of its promise to render the entire Morningside Campus in 2D. Major overhauls in PR are never taken lightly at Columbia, and […]
Everyone wants to be as cool as people in EC, so those of us west of Broadway feel the urge to adopt our own moniker: we’re “West Campus.” And to celebrate Thanksgiving (yes, the event is not PC), the west campus lounges will have free apple cider, pumpkin, sweet potatoes, and apple pie. The email […]
In July, Columbia said goodbye to longtime Dean of Student Affairs Chris Colombo. Now, Kevin Shollenberger has been appointed as his replacement as Dean of Student Affairs. Shollenberger had been serving as interim dean since Colombo left. Before becoming dean, Shollenberger was Associate Dean of Student Affairs for nine years. He is best known among […]
Sugar-loaded festivities sponsored by your student affairs office on the Lerner ramps are drawing to a close — all that remain of the cupcakes are some round, oily stains in cardboard boxes. But there’s still some hot cocoa, a few crummy-looking but deliciously-buttery heart cookies, and some chocolates. Scavenge away!
Looks like Student Governing Board has got a room of their own–in Student Affairs, complete with a new Associate Dean, two advisors, and a financial assistant (although they’ve since been ironed out, SGB has a definite history of fiscal difficulties). According to a press release today, the SGB governing board is happy with how things […]
