The Vice President’s Senior Staff and their direct reports serve the entire division and collaborate with other areas of the university on behalf of the Vice President. Grounded by a clear understanding of Vice President’s expectations, as well as an understanding of the individual missions of all SAEM units, members of the Senior Staff provide a wide range of specialized expertise to the division, and are often tasked to advise on or lead projects and initiatives.
This capacity allows SAEM to maintain efficiency while remaining flexible enough to take on new directives and initiatives. The Senior Staff’s specialized expertise includes budgeting and planning, human resources, IT and web governance, web and social media communications and marketing strategy (with an emphasis on undergraduate recruitment), Hobsons CRM systems administration, strategic planning, and assessment.
Additionally, the Vice President’s Office has campus and system-wide responsibilities in the areas of degree processing and evaluation, commencement planning, and diploma distribution. SAEM Executives report to the Vice President while serving as leaders of their overall, representatives to upper administration, campus community, and the NMSU system.
