Babson Park, Florida
For Immediate Release
Webber International University’s President & CEO, Dr. H. Keith Wade, today announced that Jay Culver, MBA has been promoted, effective immediately, to Campus Vice President of Student Life. In addition to his responsibilities for Student Life, with this promotion Culver takes on the added responsibilities of Food Service and Security for the University’s Babson Park campus. Culver remains a member of the President’s Cabinet.
Said Wade, “Webber is currently laying the groundwork for the biggest expansion in our history. In order to make that work, we’re shifting some responsibilities. Food Service and Security are two areas of the campus which have considerable contact with students and can greatly impact the student experience. Moving them into the Student Life area just makes sense.”
Culver joined the Webber staff as the Bookstore Manager in 2005. From 2005 to 2016 he also served as part time Pitching Coach for the University’s baseball team. He became Dean of Student Life in 2016.
“Jay has done a great job in Student Life,” said Wade. “At a residential campus, a lot of learning takes place outside of the classroom. Leading Student Life is a tough job and a 24/7/365 commitment. It’s not for everyone, but it’s clear at graduation each May that Culver’s commitment to the development of our students yields dividends.”
With this promotion Culver is responsible for student health and welfare, residential life (the University has 418 beds in 5 on-campus residence halls), student discipline, the co-curricular components of the University’s Quality Enhancement Plan, student activities, food service, and security.
