Receptions to be held for three candidates for vice provost for student affairs

IU-Bloomington is putting on forums and receptions to meet three finalists for the vice provost for student affairs and dean of students position.

The candidates are Teri Hall, associate vice president for campus life at Towson University; Beth Hellwig, vice chancellor of student affairs at University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire; and Lori M. Reesor, a vice president for student affairs at the University of North Dakota.

A search committee of 15 representatives from various parts of campus, including the IU Health Center, IU Police Department and IU Student Association, is seeking a replacement for current Dean of Students Harold “Pete” Goldsmith, who will be retiring June 30.

The position entails directing the Division Student Affairs, supporting a campus climate conducive to learning and responsible citizenship, and overseeing 300 full-time staff members, according to a position specification posted to the executive vice president for University academic affairs website.

Application reviews began March 15 and will continue until the position is filled, according to the website.

Hall received her doctorate of philosophy in higher education administration and a minor in anthropology from IU in 1996. In addition to serving as Towson University’s associate vice president for campus life, she has been an assistant vice president for student involvement and transitions, a director of student activities and an interim assistant vice president for student diversity at Towson.

She has also served as an associate director of the Student Activities Office at IU and a research associate for the office of the vice president for student affairs at Southeast Missouri State University.

Before serving as a vice chancellor and dean of students at University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, Hellwig served as a dean of student services for eight years at Gonzaga University.

Reesor has served as an associate vice provost for student success at University of Kansas, associate dean in the University of Missouri-Kansas City’s School of Education, and assistant dean and adjunct instructor, also at the University of Missouri-Kansas City.

Forums and receptions for the three candidates will take place this week and next week.
