AMHERST, Ma. – Late last night, President Martin announced that Chief Student Affairs Officer, Title IX Coordinator, and Athletic Director Suzanne Coffey will assume the role of AAS President for the 2014-15 academic year.
“In these troubling times, we need someone with administrative experience and unimpeachable integrity to step in and implement the changes necessary to make the AAS run smoothly,” explained Martin. “Suzanne Coffey has shown herself to be an extremely competent administrator in her roles as CSAO, Title IX coordinator, and Athletic Director, and I am confident that she will do a tremendous job in taking on this additional responsibility. Protest over this appointment can only serve to cause further unrest. Students will have to trust me—this decision is in their own best interests.”
