The Colleges Reorganize Student-Centered Services

The Colleges recently welcomed new staff members to the Office of Student Affairs. These include filling three vacant staff openings and creating a new position to manage campus safety and student conduct.

Montrose Streeter joins the Colleges as the associate dean of campus safety and student conduct for both Hobart and William Smith. The position will centralize and oversee on-campus judicial processes. Most recently, Streeter was assistant dean at Keuka College. He has also served as the director of residence life at Barton College, the assistant dean of admissions at Mary Washington College and the director of multicultural programs at Carson-Newman College. Streeter is an ordained Baptist minister, active in the Mount Calvary Church of God in Christ.

David Diana returns to the Colleges as the associate dean of wellness and director of Alcohol and Other Drug Programs after a year as the assistant director of the Counseling and Advising Center at Monroe Community College. As the former director of the Colleges’ Alcohol and Other Drug Programs, Diana was active on campus and in the region, giving lectures and keeping the student and citizens informed about date rape, the importance of social norms and other drug- and alcohol-related issues.

Jeff VanLone will serve as the new director of Hubbs Counseling Center and oversee staff psychologists Sheila Singh and Bonnie Lambourn. Formerly from the Geneva area, VanLone comes to the Colleges from Lehigh University where he was a staff psychologist and an affiliate faculty member.

Robert Pool is the new director for Student Activities. Previously, Pool was the assistant dean of students at the University of Evansville. He will oversee the Student Activities program, working on community building and leadership skills, and assisting student organizations and clubs in planning and implementing a wide variety of co-curricular and social activities for campus.

“I’m thrilled to have such competent individuals in these positions, said Interim Vice President for Student Affairs Robert Flowers. “Each of them comes to the Colleges with a great deal of experience in encouraging students to live up to their academic and personal potential. They all bring with them a great deal of integrity and a genuine willingness to ensure that our students’ experiences here at the Colleges are positive.
