Tery Donelson, assistant vice president of Enrollment Management, said Student Support Services is moving for two reasons. First, the college bought the house and needed someone to occupy it. The initial idea was to move Financial Aid, but Donelson said he realized that Financial Aid is too big and also works closely with other departments in Missouri Hall, so a move for that department might be counterproductive. Therefore, the decision was made to move Student Support Services because it is the only department that is not interdependent with others.
The second reason for moving Student Support Services is growth at the college. New staff members were needed for Administration, Enrollment Management, Evaluations and Registration and Financial Aid. With the addition of eight positions in these departments, the space Student Support Services currently occupies will be become their office space.
The move originally was planned for Thanksgiving break but has been delayed, said Lombardi. The move will be the fourth in nine years for Student Support Services, and Lombardi said she hopes it will be the last.
