Edee Schulze, who has served as Bethel College’s vice president of student life for six years, is Westmont’s new vice president of student life. President Gayle D. Beebe made the announcement in an all-campus email April 22 as students returned from Easter vacation.
Schulze replaces Jane Higa Mannoia who retired in August 2013 after being diagnosed with ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease. Tim Wilson has served as interim vice president and dean of students since September 2013.
At Bethel, Schulze oversaw the student life department, which included everything related to the student experience outside the classroom — from athletics to residence life to student activities.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Dr. Schulze to Westmont where she will strengthen our mission of cultivating character and equipping great minds to be the next generation of global leaders,” President Gayle D. Beebe says. “She will continue the effective collaboration between our academic and co-curricular program.”
