Interim Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs Jonathan A. Bagger announced that the new Vice Provost for Student Affairs will be Kevin G. Shollenberger. He will assume his new role this July.
“Kevin really impressed the search committee with his dedication to students and with his experience not only in leadership and management, but in really building a sense of campus community,” Dennis O’Shea, the Executive Director of Media Relations and Crisis Communications, said.
Shollenberger will be taking charge of all of Hopkins’s committees revolving around academic affairs and student life, including registration, career advising, housing and dining, student activities, athletics and recreation, health, wellness and counseling, student jobs and student accounts.
Currently, Shollenberger is the Dean of Student Affairs at Columbia University. Shollenberger has also worked with many campuses across the nation for the National Coalition Building Institute that works against several different forms of discrimination.
Shollenberger will be succeeding Sarah Steinberg, who spent nearly two decades working at Hopkins.
