Cameron University has hired a new Director of Student Housing.

Lee Wilkerson, the Area Coordinator and Facilities Manager at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, will begin as the new director on March 17.

Vice President of Student Services Jennifer Holland has been acting as an interim director in former director Charlie Parker’s absence.

“It’s an overwhelming position,” Holland shared, “because it’s 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year…”

Holland said she is excited to welcome Wilkerson, as he has a lot of experience in several departments, including Registrar, Alumni Relations and working as Director of Intramurals.

Wilkerson said he believed working in a variety of positions has helped him to develop a respect for other departments on campus.

“I’ve worked in housing now for nine years, and Cameron will be my fourth campus,” Wilkerson said. “My experience has allowed me to see different approaches and solutions to housing processes. The last few years I have added more of a focus on facilities and projects within housing.

“All of the different roles I have served in should help me not only to maintain what housing already does well at Cameron, but also to add fresh eyes and new blood as we reexamine what we can do to better serve our students.”

Wilkerson said his primary goal, before making any changes, is to learn more about Cameron.

“For the ongoing semester, my goal is to immerse myself in Cameron…” he said.

“Naturally I want to ensure that everything continues to run smoothly, but for the most part, I am hoping to make as few changes as possible, if any, since there isn’t a lot of time left in the semester.”
