Housing Staff Changes Hands: Mitchell to head up housing, Mayo moves to athletics

A reorganization of the campus housing staff was made in December, with dean of students Chris Mitchell taking on a role as housing director.

Previous housing director Michael Mayo has been named associate athletic director.

Mitchell said one of the pros of his position is getting to know the students more and working with their needs. He says he also enjoys working with the housing staff, namely the resident coordinators and resident assistants.

“It’s a lot to work to take on, especially in the roles I already do play on campus as director of safety and dean of students,” said Mitchell, in regards to the additional position. “I do understand why CBC asked me to take on this responsibility, because all of these go hand in hand with each other.”

Mitchell oversees several responsibilities in seeing that the campus runs smoothly and he said that despite his role at CBC, or perception, he really does enjoy being around students.

Senior Stephanie Battles is third floor resident coordinator.

“Chris has done a great job fulfilling this position on such short notice,” she said. “Each week he has been making sure that we are doing our jobs to the fullest, and making sure that he can assist in any way.”

Mitchell said he enjoys the positions he oversees.

“I really like helping younger adults develop their skills for later workplace success,” Mitchell said.
