Office Name Changes and Relocations


Office of Student Life Renamed 

Effective immediately, the JSU Office of Student Life has been renamed the Dean of Students Office. Terry Casey, Director of Student Life, has been promoted to Dean of Students. 

“What prompted the change is that we need a Dean of Students who will lead our efforts for engagement,” said Dr. Timothy King, Vice President for Student Affairs. “As Dean of Students, Mr. Casey will oversee all aspects of student development and engagement as well as oversight for the new department of Community Standards and Student Ethics.”

Student conduct will be the responsibility of the new Director of Community Standards and Student Ethics, Lauren Lowell, who will start at JSU on Jan. 23. In his new role as Dean of Students, Casey brings more than 20 years of higher education experience in student life, Greek life, SGA, leadership programs, first-year experience and orientation.
