Mallory Sidarous will serve as interim director of University Housing for the coming year.
Sidarous, currently serving as associate director, will take on the interim director role beginning July 1.
Sidarous said she first came to SIUE in August 2008 as a marketing specialist for University Housing. She advanced to her current position over four years ago.
Sidarous sought educational opportunities from the university as well, earning a master’s degree in business administration in 2011.
Sidarous’ appointment to interim director came after the retirement of former director Mike Schultz, who served in this role for 30 years. Sidarous said she is looking forward to continuing the work housing has done under his leadership.
“I’m excited for the opportunity to just continue the really good work that’s happening in University Housing,” Sidarous said. “We have some great teams … and there is a strong foundation of student-first mentality.”
