  ANNUAL REPORT STUDENT AFFAIRS  2013 -2014  VICE PRESIDENT LETTER FROM the Dear colleagues and friends, I am pleased to share the 2013-2014 Division of Student Affairs annual report with you. Working together and in collaboration with students, faculty, and staff throughout the University, the departments in the division have fostered a vibrant, engaged, diverse, and inclusive learning community outside of the classroom; provided outstanding services, programs, and opportunities for student leadership development; and supported students’ success as well as their physical and emotional health and well-being.We have accomplished a great deal in the past year. A few of the highlights are as follows:ã Achieved unprecedented success in our varsity athletic programs. Numerous teams enjoyed success in Ohio Athletic Conference (OAC) play with four teams (women’s soccer, women’s basketball, women’s cross country, and baseball) coming through with conference titles. An additional four teams (men’s basketball, men’s lacrosse, men’s soccer, and women’s soccer) reached the championship game of their respective OAC Tournament. Softball advanced to their seventh straight OAC Tournament. It was an outstanding year to be a Blue Streak Athlete!ã Completed most elements of the Comprehensive Policing Program plan, including the arming of JCUPD officers and the renaming of the department from Campus Safety Services to the John Carroll University Police Department (JCUPD). This multi-phase plan has been in process since the department was certified as an official police department in 2001. Since then, many staff and officers are to be recognized for their work in seeing this plan to fruition. ã Collaborated with staff from several University offices (Facilities, Information Technology Services, Finance and Administrative Services), and community partners (The Krill Company, Inc., Hasenstab Architects, Inc., Carl Walker, Inc. engineering firm) in the successful, on-time, and under-budget renovation of Murphy Hall. Murphy Hall is eligible to be named JCU’s first Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified building on campus. LEED is a rating system for the design, construction, operation, and maintenance of green buildings, homes, and neighborhoods.ã Managed a successful tripling of 300 first-year students due to the renovation of Murphy Hall. The Office of Residence Life Staff implemented a targeted program aimed at the smooth transition and retention of students in triples. The students who lived in triples had a higher average fall semester GPA and were retained at the same rate as their peers.ã Established the CARE Team with faculty and staff colleagues from the College of Arts and Sciences, Office of Residence Life, Boler School of Business, Campus Ministry, ROTC, Office of the Registrar, Office of Financial Aid, and the Department of Athletics. This past year, the team met regularly throughout the year to develop and implement intervention plans for 115 students to support their academic success, and personal and financial needs.The report that follows contains the mission statements, goals, accomplishments, and assessment and evaluation information for each of the departments in student affairs. The statements of students served by the departments help capture the supportive, dynamic, integrative, and purposeful interactions that occur among staff and students in the student affairs units. I am most grateful for the many contributions staff members have made to develop creative solutions to considerable challenges presented by the Murphy Hall renovation project; to collaborate with campus and community partners to serve students facing difficult situations that impact their learning and development; and to invigorate student life with exciting varsity athletic events, large-scale and weekend social programs, a wide variety of leadership development activities, wellness programming, and a vibrant, active fraternity and sorority life community. Your feedback and comments are most appreciated. Sincerely, MARK D. MCCARTHY, PH.D.
