From Leslie Reynolds: 
"We are proposing a new section for the division: Higher Education Administration (HEA)
Proposed scope note: The Higher Education Administration Section of the SLA Academic Division provides a forum for members who are interested in big picture higher education issues and how academic librarians can respond to those challenges and new directions in academia. Some topics to be addressed include accreditation, assessment, student recruitment, retention and persistence, outreach to parents, marketing, advancement and development, and facilities. The section will give members a place to talk about these issues and learn from peers in Associate Dean, Associate University Librarian, Director, Dean, or other administrative roles in academic libraries.
Rationale: Librarians who begin their career as special librarians in academic institutions are often promoted over time into more general administrative positions. This section gives those special academic librarians a place to discuss higher education administration issues at SLA.
If this is something you would like to join, please sign the petition here https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/SLAAcadHEA."
The Academic Division is pursuing the addition of a new section: Higher Education Administration. Rationale: Librarians who begin their career as special librarians in academic institutions are often promoted over time into more general administrative positions.

He is the Digital Projects Coordinator for Cornell University's Hospitality, Labor, and Management Library, where he is responsible for two open access digital repositories, and has recently completed a year as one of Cornell's Digital Scholarship Fellows. He recently was a candidate for SLA President-Elect.
