Munsters named Deputy Dean of Students for Student AffairsBy Josh Schonwald
The University has a new student affairs dean effective this week, Monday, Nov. 3.
Martina Munsters, former Associate Director of Student Affairs for the Graduate School of Business Ph.D. program, has begun her post as Deputy Dean of Students in the University for Student Affairs.
The appointment is the continuation of a reorganization of the Office of the Vice President and Dean of Students in the University that began last fall.
In her new role, Munsters will guide the efforts of four department directors who administer central University student services: health affairs, student affairs, graduate affairs and international affairs.
“With a central dean of students focus,” said Steve Klass, Vice President and Dean of Students in the University, “Martina also will provide guidance and support to the deans of students in the divisions and schools in student affairs matters.”
Munsters will help develop University policies and procedures for student affairs and also will resolve student issues and problems that come to the attention of the central administration, said Klass.
Munsters, who will report to Klass, has a wealth of experience in University administration and student services. Prior to her position in the GSB, she managed the Benefits Counseling Office for University Human Resources Management and served as both University Assistant and Associate Dean of Students for nine years, where she dealt with student safety and security, health services, discipline and disability issues, and transportation.
Munsters and her husband also have previously served as Resident Heads in the undergraduate house system for seven years.
