Dr. Deborah Sullivan has been hired as Director of Campus Wellness on the AU campus and will provide overall leadership for the preparation, collaboration, advocacy and administration of the University’s wellness programs for students, faculty and staff.

This strategic hire will report to the Vice President of Student Affairs, and work to create a comprehensive health and wellness strategy for students, faculty and staff. The Director will coordinate facets of campus wellness to maintain a healthy, safe and supportive campus environment.
