Jeffrey A. Dodge, Associate Dean for Students & Administration and Associate Clinical Professor of Law, has assumed two new leadership roles for 2017-18. The Associate Dean Group is composed of at least one Associate Dean from each College as well as the Library and Dean of Students Office. It meets every other week to discuss, advise, and review University matters. Dean Dodge was elected the facilitator for that group next year. He was also then appointed as the Group's liaison to the University's Threat Assessment and Management Team. That team is charged with developing comprehensive fact-based assessments of students, employees or other individuals who may present a threat to the university. The team includes representatives from Academic Affairs, Student Affairs, Human Resources and the Moscow Police department. The team also includes a clinical psychologist from the University's Counseling and Testing Center. University General Counsel serves as an adviser to the Threat Assessment and Management Team.
