With two direct reports and roughly 850 salaried and wage professional staff and more than 1600 student staff between the two units, the AVP must lead with integrity, humility, and transparency.

The AVP for Student Affairs will provide exemplary leadership and vision for Tech’s self-operated Dining program, with more than seven million annual dining transactions and 120 events per year, and Facilities and Housing Operations with 3.24 million gross square feet and 48 residence halls under its purview.

Several exciting Student Affairs capital projects are underway that will grow each of these areas over the coming few years.
