The Division of Student
Affairs is pleased to announce that Alcohol, Tobacco, and Other Drugs (ATOD)
has been renamed Student Wellness and Engagement (SWE).
The Division for
Student Affairs recognizes the need to expand the scope of its services.
Speaking to this need, SWE’s work will provide leadership within the overall
programming efforts in the Student Affairs Division to offer additional support
to students. SWE will work collaboratively with the Office of Student Support
and Community Standards. This change will enhance the university’s goal
to deliver strong student support and an engaging community, working in
tandem with the new Student Support and Engagement Team.
Ann Sesti will continue
to lead the department under a new title: Director of Student Wellness and
Engagement. She will continue to oversee Health and Wellness Promotion and will
preserve the efforts of the office formally known as Alcohol, Tobacco, and
Assistant Vice President for Student Affairs Malaika
Turner said, “This new change will enhance the programming efforts in
Student Affairs and will have a huge impact on retention at IUP.”
