Dean Shan Sutton describes his vision for the student success district.

Administration comprises the deans and their support staff as well as functional areas that serve the entire Libraries: development, facilities, finance, human resources, marketing, and user experience.  We use a shared governance model for planning and decision-making.

The Marketing & Communications team shares information with students, faculty and staff when and where they need it. Reaching across the campus and throughout the community, we promote the Libraries’ resources, services, events and stories on our websites and through print materials, digital and social media, video, PR and advertising. 

User Experience

The UX team manages user research efforts across the library, bringing user stories to the forefront of strategic planning and change. We help focus library efforts on what benefits users most, reducing inefficiencies, increasing user engagement, and improving the likelihood of our long-term success.
