(June 21, 2012) -- The UTSA Office of Student Life announces the appointment of John Kaulfus as interim director of housing and residence life. Kaulfus began the appointment June 1. He is replacing Lionel Maten, who left to serve in the same position at the University of Mississippi. Kaulfus also will continue in his duties as UTSA associate dean of students.
A national search for the new director of housing and residence life is planned for spring 2013 with an anticipated start date next summer.
Kaulfus came to UTSA in 2001 as the managing director of University Oaks and Chisholm Hall. He served as executive director of the University Center and student activities before becoming associate dean of students. Previously, he was a housing professional at the University of Texas at Austin, Texas State University, St. Joseph's University in Philadelphia and Texas State Technical College in Waco.
"Working with students living and learning on campus has always been a passion of mine, and I am pleased to be able to step in during such an exciting time," said Kaulfus. "Currently under construction, the San Saba residence facility will make a great addition to our campus." Opening in 2013, San Saba Hall will house 618 students.
"UTSA is fortunate to have a professional of John's caliber to assume the role of interim director at this critical time," said Kevin Price, UTSA associate vice president for student life and dean of students. "I have great confidence in his ability to provide effective leadership to the Department of Housing and Residence Life."
To contact Kaulfus for housing issues, call 210-458-6203, and for associate dean of students issues, call 210-458-4740.
