The spring semester will involve filling many key positions within Student Affairs and Enrollment Management. The most current positiions we are seraching for include directors for Financial Aid and for Student Accessibility Services. After the search committees identify finalists for these positions, all staff will have an opportunity to interact with the candidates and provide feedback through various opportunities.
Search committees for each of these positions must have at least 3 members. The job of the search committee is to sort through the applicants, eliminate those who do not meet the job qualifications, and forward a list of the top four to six candidates to Bernadette. When the finalists are invited to campus, there will be events for any interested staff to meet the candidates. As always, I will seek feedback from everybody who meets the candidates via a confidential web survey.
Both of these areas require a high degree of specialized knowledge, so we sought search committee members with expertise and experience in these areas. The committee for the Student Accessibility Services search is being chaired by Terry Cook; she is currently working on staffing that committee with Susan Waldo.
The Financial Aid Director search committee is being chaired by Dacia Sedillo and will be staffed by:
- Darlene Duvall, NMSU-A Financial Aid Director
Gladys Chairez, DACC Financial Aid Director
- Jill Hall, Financial Aid Advisor, Financial Aid and Scholarship Services
- Sandy Byhower, Senior Fiscal Assistant, Financial Aid and Scholarship Services
- Preema Chinnasami, Systems Analyst, Student Information Management
- Norma Noel, Associate Controller, Sponsored Projects Accounting
I will share more news about these searches and news of other open positions as it becomes available.
Thank you for your continued support, and I look forward to your further involvement as these searches get underway.
