Dean of Students Christopher Card, Senior Associate Dean of Students Dr. Ann E. Reuman, Associate Dean of Students Robert Lukaskiewicz, Director of Student Activities, Involvement & Leadership (S.A.I.L.) Laura Whittemore, Title IX Coordinator Timothy Dunn, Director of the Women & Gender Resource Action Center (WGRAC) Laura Lockwood, Program Coordinator for the Women & Gender Resource Action Center (WGRAC) Abdul Staten, and President of EAC Barnyard Rose Carroll.
