Student Services announced Dean of Students Valerie Simmons-Walston has been appointed as the new associate vice president for student affairs and director of residence life at the University of Toledo in Ohio.
Amanda Lammers, vice president for student services, said that Simmons-Walston “for the past 11 years has passionately served the university. To say she will be missed within our division is a true understatement. I am not only losing a valued employee, but also the privilege of getting to work alongside one of my very best friends. I could not be more proud of her, though.”
The good news is Simmons-Walston will be here briefly into the new year, at which time Student Services will host a grand send off. Please watch your calendars.
Lammers said that, as a result of this transition, she will consider some restructuring in the department.
