New Associate Director of Residential Operations

It is my pleasure to announce that Steve Sharkis has officially accepted the position of Associate Director of Residential Operations.

Steve has been with Dining Services since January 1997 and held numerous positions with us since that time. Most recently Steve was the Area Manager at McMahon; his knowledge of our dining hall operations is extensive and in the short time he has been the interim he has shown a willingness to learn, adapt, and listen. Moving forward Steve will lead our dining hall operations as we transition into a new operation for the Fall of 2024 and help navigate the ever-changing financial climate of the University.

Please join me in congratulating Steve.

I would also like to thank the search committee; Tracey Roy, Rob Landolphi, Samantha Courtois, Dave Barbera and Stephanie Kernozicky for their time, effort, and commitment to this process.

Thank you,


Michael D. White, M.A.
