President announces changes in reporting structure

The reporting structure for several people and offices has changed with the restructuring brought on by several factors.

Many of the changes are within the Office of the President, which will allow President John Haegerand Executive Vice President MJ McMahon to be more involved with the Arizona Board of Regents.

  • Dave Brown, Skydome director, will report to Shinham.


  • The University Bookstore will be transferred to Shinham.


  • John Stark, general manager of KNAU, and Natalie Harlan, director of the Center for High Altitude Training, will report to Molly Williams, vice president for University Advancement.
