Thomas Trice is now the interim dean of students at Lindenwood University in Belleville, and Suzy Jones has been named the interim associate dean of students.
“Both have demonstrated in their current roles a very high level of devotion to our students along with intelligence, creativity, and empathy that make these appointments a strong fit,” Lindenwood-Belleville campus president Brett Barger said in a released statement. “I’m certain their teamwork and collaboration will provide progressive guidance and leadership to student services.”
Trice, an East St. Louis native, previously was an assistant professor for the Criminal Justice Department. Trice has more than 20 years of experience in law enforcement.
Jones, who has more than 15 years in higher education, previously served as director of academic success and retention at Lindenwood.
Lindenwood Belleville’s previous dean of students, Angela Wingo-Rust, 47, died in October after a battle with cancer.
