Rutgers administrator named VP for student affairs
Brian T. Rose has been appointed vice president for student affairs, President Lois B. DeFleur announced this week.
Rose, who will assume his duties at Binghamton on Jan. 7, is associate vice president for student affairs at Rutgers, a job he has held since September 2004.
“We are delighted that Brian will be joining us at Binghamton University,” DeFleur said. “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 a lawyer with 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 his responsibilities in 2002.
“I am absolutely elated to be joining the Binghamton University community as vice president for student affairs,” Rose said. “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.”
DeFleur commended the search and screening committee for its work. “I particularly appreciate the thorough and thoughtful work of Vice Provost H. Stephen Straight and the search and screening committee,” she said. “I also want to thank all of those from across campus who participated in this process.”
