For the last few months, we have focused our discussion about the reorganization of the Institute on the creation of two new graduate schools and a new dean of advising.  However, several other changes are occurring to facilitate a better flow of communications and services to our faculty, staff, students, and the external community.  In some cases these will affect supervisory responsibilities and lines of reporting.

Last September, the Office of Alumni Relations was moved into the Institutional Advancement Office.  A new Executive Director of Communications position was also established and subsequently, Jason Warburg was hired into that position.  Recently, Anne Marie Steiger, the Institute’s webmaster, has been moved, so that she now reports to Jason.

We are also combining those activities related to a student’s enrollment at the Institute.  As part of these changes, the Financial Aid Office will join with our Admissions Office and Enrollment Management Office to become the Office of Admissions, reporting to Jill Stoffers, Director of Admissions.  These moves will become effective as of March 1, 2009.

Finally, in a move designed to strengthen the services provided to students during their time at the Institute, the Dean of Advising, Careers, and Student Services will oversee three areas:  Records, Office of Student Services, and a new Academic and Career Advising Center.  The goal of this consolidation, which will become effective as of June 1, 2009, is to provide our students with enhanced services, especially those involving academic advising and career assistance, so that students engage a seamless support system during their time at the Institute.
