Clayton State University Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs Dr. Micheal Crafton has announced that Dr. Mark Daddona has agreed to drop the “interim” designation from his title and become the University’s permanent Associate Vice President for Enrollment Management & Academic Success.
Daddona was originally appointed to serve as the interim associate vice president for Enrollment Management in June 2010, assuming supervisory duties of enrollment management unit, such as Admissions, Registrar, the Center for Academic Success, the Testing Center, and Financial Aid. He works with many other groups as well, most notably the Office of Orientation and New Student Programs. Daddona was originally tasked in this position with helping the University create a set of enrollment goals, constructing methods for achieving those goals, and reporting on the success in reaching those goals.
“Since Dr. Daddona so graciously agreed to step in on an interim basis, he has accomplished much and gained the overwhelming support of the University, both those inside and outside the Enrollment Management Division, a division that Dr. Daddona created as one of his first accomplishments,” says Crafton. “Come this fall, there should be a very real change at Clayton State for improving student services, advising primarily, that is a direct result of one of Dr. Daddona’s many activities. This new entity will be called the First-Year Advising & Retention Center.”
Also among Daddona’s accomplishments was Clayton State’s spring 2011 enrollment, a record 6,785.
