Dr. Martha Spack has been appointed as the dean of students for Arkansas State University, Chancellor Kelly Damphousse said. The long-time member of the student support staff of ASU begins her new position on July 15.
“I am honored to be selected as the dean of students and consider it a privilege to accept the responsibilities that come with the position,” Spack said.
An ASU employee since 2004, she was promoted to director of the Leadership Center in 2008. In that role, Spack provided oversight for several areas that will now compose the office of the dean of students including the Student Activities Board, the Student Government Association, the Student Union, Greek Life and Residence Life, according to ASU. The dean of students will also oversee Student Conduct and the Red W.O.L.F. Center. She completed her doctorate in 2018.
Damphousse also announced the appointment of Dr. Lonnie Williams as special assistant to the chancellor. Williams will continue to direct the ASU Student Health Center and the university’s Counseling Center. He will also assist with the student conduct appeals process and manage other tasks for the Chancellor’s Office.
Both positions report to the chancellor as a part of his reorganization of campus administration.
