"Before 1954 various aspects of student personnel work were scattered in several independent offices, some reporting to the business manager, some to the chancellor, and some to the Dean of Students." (Regan, p. 152) A survey by Cresap, McCormick and Paget recommended the creation of the Dean of Student Affairs, to replace the Dean of Students. In 1954, James J. Stewart became the first Dean of Student Affairs. Although the Dean of Students has spent most of his time on student absences and disciplinary matters, the Dean of Student Affairs was able to spend more time planning and coordinating all aspects of the college's non-academic program.
