Student Affairs organizational changes to focus on families and fundraising
From: Student Affairs
New Student Programs, a department within Student Affairs, is transitioning in name to become New Student and Family Programs (NSFP), under the continued leadership of Director Lizette Rebolledo. NSFP will oversee new student transition programs including orientation (transfer, international, and first-year) and welcome week. In addition, NSFP will now organize parent and family programming, which includes parent and family orientation. Family weekends will also be organized by NSFP beginning in fall 2019.
Additionally, the office formerly known as Family and Alumni Relations, also within Student Affairs, will now be known as Student Affairs Advancement, under the leadership of Chief Advancement Officer Janice Tawney. This office will focus on engagement and philanthropic endeavors to resource and support the Virginia Tech student experience, which also includes management of the Virginia Tech Parent Council, the Student Affairs Alumni Advisory Board and Young Alumni Board, and the I WILL Council.
Save the dates for the following university-wide events:
- Spring Family Weekend, April 12-14
- Orientation, July 8 – August 2
- Fall Family Weekend – September 20-22
Student Affairs exists to provide students the programs, services, support, tools, and life skills necessary to make the most of their Virginia Tech experience while serving as a vital connection between the university and the families of our students.
