Organizational Sketch: At present, Troy University Dothan Campus’s Office of Student and Community Services oversees several other offices on campus including Admissions and Records, Financial Aid, and University Events. Most of this office’s history, however, is rooted in the former, separately accredited institution, Troy State University at Dothan (TSUD). In 1983, two years before TSUD was granted separate SACS accreditation, the Office of Student Affairs, as it was then called, operated independently of some of its future component offices, including Admissions and Records, Financial Aid, and Student Activities. As it grew, it accumulated various other responsibilities, while adding Development onto its office title. Special programs, one of these new responsibilities, acquired in 1989, eventually was of slightly greater importance to the future of the Office of Student Affairs and Development. The Office of Special Programs became a coequal to its former parent office, and only after the death of Dr. Jack Sublette, Vice President of the Office of Student Affairs (and later, simply the Office of Student Affairs), was Special Programs effectively phased out as Dr. Barbara Alford assumed leadership of the newly consolidated Office of Student and Community Affairs. In 1998, Dr. Alford was promoted to Executive Vice President of the University, and former University Relations Director Tony Whetstone led the newly named Office of Student Services. It gained its present title, the Office of Student and Community Services, in 1999. In 2001, Bob Willis assumed leadership of this office. He presently holds those same responsibilities as Dean of Students.
