Kevin R. Seitz, vice president for university services since 2002, has resigned to become vice chancellor for finance and administration at East Carolina University.



Seitz' resignation, effective Feb. 1, was announced Monday morning by President John B. Simpson in an email to faculty and staff.

"As vice president for university services, Kevin has proven himself a truly dedicated steward for our university and I have been grateful, both for his leadership and for his outstanding commitment to UB," Simpson said. "Kevin's record of more than 30 years of service to our university demonstrates the impressive depth of his dedication to our academic community.

"I have no doubt that Kevin will serve the community of East Carolina University with the same deep commitment, outstanding care and skill that has enriched UB for more than three decades."

A UB staff member since 1974, Seitz has held a variety of positions at the university, including division director for auxiliary services, associate director and acting director of personnel, assistant vice president for finance and management, assistant vice president for financial and auxiliary services, and assistant vice president and interim director of administrative computing services.

He was promoted to associate vice president and controller in 1997, and to senior associate vice president for university services in 2001. Elevated to vice president for university services in 2002, Seitz has been responsible for facilities management and for the university's business services, including financial management, human resources and legal services.

In addition to his administrative responsibilities, Kevin also served UB as a lecturer in Millard Fillmore College for nearly 20 years, teaching algebra and trigonometry.

Seitz earned a bachelor's degree in management and an MBA, both from UB. He is enrolled in the doctoral program in higher education administration at UB.
