 SUBJECT:  AU Central Staff


In preparation of the opening of AU Central, a new office designed to streamline customer service to our students, we are pleased to announce the team of talented individuals that will staff this important new unit.

The staff of AU Central consists of an interim Executive Director (Elizabeth Douglass), an Operations Director (Jonnel Clothier), two Associate Directors (Valerie Verra and Gene Logan), and a Senior Administrative Assistant (Melissa Diawara). Through a collaborative process of reorganization, the following front-line staff members from the Offices of the Registrar, Financial Aid, and Student Accounts have been transferred to AU Central and are undergoing intensive cross-training to enable them to provide comprehensive services that encompass all three offices:

Meghan Allen, Financial Aid
Mauricio Burgos, Registrar
David Corbin, Registrar
Susan Gamboa, Financial Aid
Travis Lawson, Registrar
Adi Mema, Student Accounts
Joseph Onyebuchi, Financial Aid
Trevor Taylor, Student Accounts

The AU Central office will open its doors on July 1, 2010 in 201 Asbury Building, the former location of the Office of the Registrar, which has moved to university facilities located at 4200 Wisconsin Avenue. Formal announcements regarding the grand opening of AU Central will be sent in early July and again during Welcome Week in August.
