Regardless of whether or not students had a direct and valued say in this decision, hopefully it will prove to be a positive one.
The Office of the Provost is pleased to announce that Dr. Carol Hagans has accepted the offer to become the new Associate Provost for Student Academic Affairs, effective Monday, May 18.
Since June 2000, Dr Hagans has called Butler her home, serving both as the Director of Counseling and Consultation Services and the Assistant Dean of Student Affairs. She completed her undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral degrees at Ball State University and is both APA and CACREP accredited. Dr Hagans has a proven record with 18 years of experience in higher education, ranging from small liberal arts, medium-sized land-grant institutions, and the Graduate School of Theology in the Caribbean, and brings with her specialized knowledge of Butler students and issues they face from both a therapy and Student Affairs professional services background.
I would like to express sincere gratitude to the Associate Provost for Student Academic Affairs Search Committee, which consisted of chair Joe Kirsh and committee members Gary Beaulieu, Bob Bennett, Sally Click, Jennifer Griggs, Kent Grumbles, Kendra Hormann, Scott Kincaid, Deb Lecklider, Tom Weede, and Anne Wilson, for their time and efforts in this decision.
Please join my enthusiasm in congratulating Dr. Hagans as she begins this exciting new facet of her professional life.
Dr. Jamie Comstock
