Assistant Dean of Students and Director of the Center for Student Conflict Management Morgan Levy will officially step down from her current position on Oct. 31. She will assume the role of University equal opportunity/affirmative action compliance director in the Office of Counsel on Nov. 1.

Levy said that she is leaving her current position because she decided that she was “ready for a new challenge.”

“The decision to leave this position was not easy,” she said. “I have really enjoyed working so closely with the talented students and staff in the Office of the Dean of Students and I am so proud of my and my team’s accomplishments during this time.”

Dean of Students Matthew Burns has appointed a search committee consisting of students and staff who are likely to work closely with the assistant dean and chaired by Assistant Dean of Freshmen and Associate Director of Residential Life Dan Watts to find someone to fill Levy’s role. Levy estimates that her position will be filled around January.

Levy said she is particularly appreciative of the work of the Standing Committee on Alcohol Policy and Education (SCAPE) and the Education and Alternative Dispute Resolution Committees during her time as assistant dean.

“As chair of these committees, I had the privilege of seeing the students and staff who served on them struggle, with passion and thoughtfulness, to create practices and policies that will help our community make healthy and safe choices about alcohol and implement effective conflict resolution strategies,” she said.

She also said she feels lucky to have had the chance to create the Center for Student Conflict Management and lead the team comprising Assistant Director for Student Conduct Jessica Ecock and Assistant Director for Student Support Erin Halligan.

In her new role at the University, Levy will analyze and coordinate University efforts related to equal opportunity, affirmative action, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Rehabilitation Act and Title IX of the 1972 Education Amendments.
