Dean Shan Sutton describes his vision for the student success district.

Administration comprises the deans and their support staff as well as functional areas that serve the entire Libraries: development, facilities, finance, human resources, marketing, and user experience.  We use a shared governance model for planning and decision-making.

Our user experience, analytics and assessment (UXAA) staff cultivate a culture of inquiry, empathy, and data-informed decision-making. We consult with, train, and empower library employees and campus partners on user experience and assessment methods. We coordinate implementation of the library’s strategic map and help tell the story of the impact of the library on student success, researcher productivity, and community engagement.
