Greenwell appointed director of student programs
Joey Greenwell was appointed director of the Office of Student Programs and Leadership Development effective Aug. 9.
He comes to SFSU from Stanford University, where he was the associate director of student activities for the past six years.
"I was fortunate to find out early in life that one of my greatest passions is advising students and student organizations, assisting them in leadership development, programming and event planning," Greenwell said.
Greenwell is a graduate of Vanderbilt University where he earned an undergraduate degree in music and psychology and a masters in education. Prior to his position at Stanford he served as assistant director of student activities at Colgate University.
The Office of Student Programs and Leadership Development will hold an open house later this semester, at which the campus community will have the opportunity to meet Greenwell.

In honor of the anniversary of the signing of the U.S. Constitution the History Department will host a day of discussion on Monday, Sept. 19, to raise awareness and gain perspective on the U.S. Constitution.
Led by distinguished faculty, the topics of the lively lectures and discussions will include race and social justice, the constitution in times of war, disability rights and the constitution and voting district reapportionment. Faculty from the political science, history, ethnic studies, English and math departments will participate.
A new federal law requires colleges to present programs about the U.S. Constitution each year on or near the anniversary of the signing of the document, Sept. 17, 1787. The requirement was inserted in a fall 2004 spending bill by Senator Robert C. Byrd, Democrat of West Virginia. The U.S. Department of Education issued guidelines late last May.
This month's Newsmakers include Gerard Heather, professor of political science, on the Karl Rove investigation; Michelle Wolf, professor of broadcast and electronic communication arts, on media literacy; William Cochlan, senior research scientist at the Romberg Tiburon Center, on the Pacific ecosystem; Abdiel Onante, professor of history, on free trade with Central Amercia; and creative writing faculty Michelle Carter and Maxine Chernoff on creative writing programs.
