Englin assumes expanded VP role

Residence director Pete Englin has been named assistant vice president for student affairs in addition to his current duties. Englin moved into this expanded role on Jan. 30.

As residence director since 2005, Englin coordinates the operation of programs and service delivery to more than 12,000 students residing in university-owned and managed traditional residence halls, suites and apartments.

As assistant vice president for student affairs, Englin reports to senior vice president for student affairs Martino Harmon and provides executive leadership for both ISU Dining and the residence department. ISU Dining director Mohamed Ali will continue to direct dining operations.

“I am so honored to serve in this expanded role,” Englin said. “We already have a natural partnership between housing and dining. This stronger tie will help both organizations bring a greater level of service to our students.”

Englin will collaborate with division leadership to set the vision for capital planning and space management for student affairs. He also will manage student affairs strategic planning and represent the senior vice president for student affairs on various committees and planning groups related to university capital projects.

“I’m really excited about Pete taking on an expanded leadership role in the division. He is one of our most senior cabinet members,” Harmon said. “As assistant vice president for student affairs, Pete will bring his experience to the division cabinet and student affairs will benefit from his leadership.”
