Cheryl-Ann Hagner, formerly director of university events and scheduling, became the director of graduate student services on Sept. 12.
Hagner came to Wesleyan in 2001, and has served as director of events and scheduling since 2006. Over the past five years, Hagner and her team have played a critical role in implementing the online Event Management System (EMS), which now serves as the central scheduling software for spaces and events across campus. Hagner has led the effort to streamline the room scheduling process during a time when event bookings at Wesleyan have more than doubled to more than 18,000 events per year. Through her work, she has been instrumental in planning many of Wesleyan’s campus-wide events.
In her new role, Hagner will work closely with Mike Whaley, vice president for student affairs, and with the director of graduate studies to manage all aspects of graduate student affairs and promote a positive experience for Wesleyan’s 200 or so graduate students working in nine university departments.
