Binghamton University names new vice president for student affairs
BINGHAMTON, NY – Binghamton University President Lois B. DeFleur has announced that Brian T. Rose will begin serving as vice president for student affairs on January 7, 2008. Rose is currently associate vice president for student affairs at Rutgers, a position he has held since September 2004.
“We are delighted that Brian will be joining us at Binghamton University,” said DeFleur. “Through his prior work at Rutgers, he brings breadth and depth of experience in campus life, student groups and the development of programs. He has extensive administrative expertise, with a strong record of developing several major projects at Rutgers during the reorganization and consolidation of their campuses. Brian’s strong leadership and broad experience from a major public university will benefit our entire University.”
After earning his bachelor's degree from the University of Pennsylvania and his juris doctor from Georgetown University Law Center, Rose served as an attorney for the Stradley, Ronon, Stevens and Young law firm. He joined Rutgers in 1991 as an assistant dean of students. In 1995, he became the director of compliance and student policy concerns, and assumed responsibility for student policy development, FERPA and ADA/504 compliance. Supervision of the Office of Judicial Affairs was added to Rose’s responsibilities in 2002.
"I am absolutely elated to be joining the Binghamton University community as Vice President for Student Affairs,” said Rose. “During my visits to campus, I was deeply impressed with the enthusiasm, superb talents and diverse interests of the student body as well as the passion and pride that faculty, staff and students share about the University. I look forward to working with all my new colleagues in support of Binghamton's students and thank the many members of the University community who have already made my family and me feel so welcome."
