Published January 8, 2021

Dear University Community:

I am very pleased to announce that UB has launched the search for our next vice president for student life. Mark Alnutt, director of athletics, is serving as chair of the search committee.

The position of vice president for student life is critical to helping us realize our shared vision for UB. As we continue to rise in the ranks of the nation’s public research universities, it is so important that we keep our students at the heart of everything we do. Our vice president for student life will be instrumental in this regard by leading the innovative programming and opportunities that enhance our students’ UB experience.

The search committee includes UB senior leadership, faculty, staff, and students. I am grateful to the members of this committee for their willingness to assist UB in recruiting an outstanding individual for this important leadership position. We have secured the services of Spelman Johnson to assist the search committee. Mr. Mark A. Hall, vice president, will be the principal from the firm working on this search.

The search committee will begin their work very shortly, and we anticipate having an appointment made by the end of the spring semester. Throughout the coming months, Chair Alnutt will update the university community on the committee’s progress. Information also will be available on the search website.
