VP Message - Interim AVP Named

Dear DSA team,

It gives me great pleasure to share with you that Laurie Klein has agreed to serve as interim Assistant Vice President for Student Affairs overseeing Counseling and Testing Services, Office of Disability Access, Recreational Sports, Student Health and Wellness, and the Student Money Management Center. She will continue to be our Director of Recreational Sports, a position she has served in for seven years.

As many of you recall, this position has been vacant since Teresa McKinney departed for Texas Southern University in Houston last July.

We will resume our national search once UNT’s hiring freeze has lifted. In the meantime, having Laurie step into this role will give these departments the more hands-on attention they need in this time of disruption.

Laurie’s 27 years at UNT coupled with her extensive experience in management, launching new initiatives, and her time serving in various leadership roles in professional organizations gives me all the confidence in the world that she will excel in this role.

I thank her for taking this on!

Take care,

Elizabeth With Ed.D.
