Dean of Students hired
Following a national search, April Thompson, associate dean of the College for Campus Life at Dartmouth College, has been appointed as Dean of Students, effective Monday, Aug. 6. Thompson possesses a student-centered philosophy and a collaborative leadership style that was evident throughout the search process. Her demonstrated strong commitment to student development and success make her an excellent match for Binghamton.
In her role as dean, Thompson will work closely with students to support their learning and development through the areas of student conduct, student activities, multicultural programs, off-campus services, parent and family programs, and fraternity and sorority affairs. As the University Union renovations progress, she will also work with colleagues in the Division of Student Affairs to identify ways to capitalize on the student-focused changes by developing new programs to benefit students.
