AMES, Iowa -- Peter Englin has been appointed dean of students at Iowa State University.

Englin has served as interim dean of students since July 2000. His appointment to the permanent position was effective Saturday, Oct. 6.

The dean of students is responsible for a variety of student academic and support services, and oversees such units as student activities, student government, tutoring services and recreation services. The dean of students also works closely with a variety of student groups, including Greek organizations, off-campus students and non-traditional students.

Englin has served as associate dean of students since 1999. He has held several other positions at Iowa State, including coordinator of residence life (1991-99) and residence marketing and conference coordinator (1989-91). He also served as assistant director for conference housing and residence hall services at North Dakota State University, Fargo. Englin earned a B.S. in zoology (1982) and an M.A. in counseling and guidance (1987), both from North Dakota State. He received a Ph.D. in hotel, restaurant, institution management and family consumer science education from Iowa State this year.

Iowa State's former dean of students, Kathleen MacKay, stepped down from the position in July 2000. She is now dean of student affairs at Elmhurst College, Illinois.
