Assistant Dean Jeannette Elliott Brown to Retire
October 12, 2008 — With some sadness and much gratitude, we are announcing the retirement of Jeannette Elliott Brown, Assistant Dean and Director of Student Services. Jeannette joined Drexel University in 1978. Eight years later she joined our College, then the Nesbitt College of Design Arts (CODA), as the Administrative Services Coordinator, and ultimately rose to the position of Assistant Dean and Director of Student Services. Throughout her career, Jeannette has been a tireless and devoted advocate for the students of our College. She has overseen the growth of the Office of Students Services from two staff members to the current staff of six. She went from being responsible for the advising of several hundred students to overseeing the advising of over two thousand students today. We wish we had kept track of the thousands of problems and issues she has solved over the years. Jeannette has earned our trust and become our friend and we will miss seeing her on a daily basis. We wish her well in her future endeavors and we'll be determined to keep Jeannette a trusted and important member of our community.
David Feldman who joined our college in 2003 and has been the college's Senior Academic Advisor will become the College's Assistant Dean and Director of Student Services. Dawn Gibian will be promoted to Senior Academic Advisor. Please join me in extending our best wishes and thanks to Jeannette and congratulations to David and Dawn on their promotions.
