Areas of Responsibility

The Executive Vice President is responsible for providing overall leadership for University operations and administrative services, and for direct oversight of:

Administrative Planning

Laura Strickler, Deputy for Safety and Administration and Chief of Staff

The administrative planning team is engaged in a broad range of activities, both strategic and tactical, to assist the EVP in executing her duties as the chief operating officer of the University.

Campus Life

Campus Life creates an engaging environment that inspires students to realize their full potential through self-discovery, connection to community, meaningful work, a love of learning, and a life of purpose. They work closely with the Office of the Provost, the Office of the Executive Vice President, the Dean of the College, the Dean of the Faculty, the Graduate School, and University Services to enhance student success. Campus Life staff touch most—if not all—of the student population at Princeton through educational and social programming initiatives, support services, and outreach.

Environmental Health and Safety

The Princeton University Office of Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) provides leadership, technical support, information and training, consultation, and periodic audits of environmental, health and safety practices, and regulatory compliance.

Ombuds Office

Wokie Nwabueze, University Ombuds Officer

The Ombuds Office is an impartial resource that operates independently from any formal University process. It offers a confidential place for students, faculty, and staff to discuss academic concerns, administrative issues, workplace issues, questions about policies and procedures, and the types of conflicts that can be expected in a changing University community, while supporting the values of respect, integrity, fairness, and inclusion. While keeping strict confidentiality, the Ombuds Office also provides University officials with general information about trends and emerging needs to help the University proactively improve its policies and practices.

The Ombuds Office reports to the Office of the Executive Vice President for administrative purposes but otherwise maintains its independence. 

Public Safety

Kenneth Strother Jr., Assistant Vice President for Public Safety

They encourage students, staff, faculty, and visitors to partner with them and utilize the services, initiatives, and trainings provided on a daily basis.
