YPSILANTI - Jim Vick, vice president for student affairs, and Steve Holda, interim director for business and finance, announced today several staff changes at Eastern Michigan University.

Holda announced that Don Wood, interim associate vice president for human resources, has resigned to take a similar position with the city of Taylor. As a result of his resignation, a number of internal reassignments are taking place.

Karen Simpkins, associate vice president for student affairs, will move on an interim basis to the business and finance division on special assignment to human resources.  She will retain her title as associate vice president. Vick said he expects the appointment will last from six-to-nine months after which Simpkins will return to her job as associate vice president for student affairs. 

“Karen will retain some responsibilities in student affairs during this interim appointment and she will not be a candidate for the position,” Vick said.

Mike Erwin, director of career services, will serve as interim associate vice president for student affairs. Sarah Kersey Otto, assistant director of career services, will serve as interim director of career services.  Both Erwin and Otto will retain some responsibilities related to their current positions, Vick said.
