Dear students, faculty, and staff,
Last week we welcomed our new dean of students, Elizabeth Agosto, to Amherst. As many of you will recall, Liz comes to us from Dartmouth, where she served for six years as senior associate dean for student affairs. While there, Liz oversaw an 80-member team in areas that included wellness, case management, diversity and inclusion, and religious and spiritual life. Both of us were involved in the search for a dean of students. We are delighted to have Liz as a colleague and look forward to working with her as we continue to focus our divisions on enhancing students’ experiences and success at Amherst.
