Updated 4 years ago Special to HNN Provided by Marshall University

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. - The Marshall University office of the Senior Vice President for Administration is now known as the office of the Senior Vice President for Operations. This change comes as Brandi Jacobs-Jones takes over this senior vice president role.

Jacobs-Jones officially began her duties at the university May 12 while taking on the responsibilities of the office of the Senior Vice President for Administration. She believes that the new name for the office more clearly explains the office responsibilities.

"The renaming of the division from administration to operations better describes the mission and objectives pursued by our remarkable staff," Jacobs-Jones said.

It is the responsibility of the office to oversee the daily operations of many university services and departments. These services and departments include:

-  Physical Plant
-  Housing and Residence Life
-  Campus ID Card Office
-  Printing Services
-  Mail Services
-  Environmental Health and Safety
-  Purchasing
-  Food Services

"This rebranding will not diminish the high level of service that the students, alumni, faculty, staff and community have become accustomed to receiving by the institution," Jacobs-Jones said.
