U.Va. names new student affairs chief
Robyn S. Hadley to become vice president and chief student affairs officer
The University of Virginia announced Thursday that Robyn S. Hadley will become its new vice president and chief student affairs officer effective June 1.
Hadley currently serves as associate vice chancellor and dean for scholar programs at Washington University in St. Louis. In her new role at the Charlottesville university, Hadley will report to the president and provost and lead more than 200 student affairs professionals.
“Robyn sees working with students as a calling, and her compassion and enthusiasm for helping students to thrive and succeed were immediately evident,” U.Va. President Jim Ryan said in a statement. “Provost [Liz] Magill and I wanted to find a chief student affairs officer dedicated to expanding access, holistic student development, and creating citizen-leaders, and Robyn has a history of success in all of those areas and a background that allows her to build powerful connections.”
Hadley will succeed Patricia M. Lampkin, who is retiring after more than 40 years at U.Va., including 18 as vice president.
