Kyle Williams to serve as special advisor to AVP for belonging, engagement, and community
This month, Campus Life welcomed our new associate vice president for belonging, engagement, and community and dean of students. In approaching this new portion of our organizational journey, we want to recognize Kyle R. Williams, EdD, for the work he has done within Campus Life and the greater Emory community.
Williams joined Campus Life little over a year ago in a temporary role to aid in a time of transition and to shepherd the work with Keeling & Associates, a higher education consulting and professional services firm. His efforts have allowed us to keep moving forward.
To continue to support our transition, Williams has graciously agreed to serve as special advisor to the associate vice president for belonging, engagement, and community and dean of students until January 31, 2024, to further support our crisis management and response efforts, which include participation on the CARE team, threat assessment, Campus Life Incident Response Team (CLIRT) and bias response. Additionally, he will continue work leading our Black Male Initiative and working on other special projects as needed. Williams will be refining the frameworks we have built, allowing us to further create a culture of comprehensive support for students.
