MONTICELLO, AR — Renea McClendon has been named dean of students and executive director of residence life at the University of Arkansas at Monticello, according to Jay Hughes, vice chancellor for student affairs.

            McClendon will serve as the institution’s chief conduct officer and her responsibilities will include oversight of campus judicial procedures, residence life, student programs and activities, intramurals and recreation, and faculty-staff housing. This is McClendon’s third position on UAM’s professional staff. She was previously director of residence life and judicial affairs and most recently served as a financial aid analyst in default management in the Office of Financial Aid.

            “I am pleased to welcome Renea McClendon back to the student affairs staff,” said Hughes. “We are fortunate to have someone with Renea’s background and experience take over this vital position. She will be a tremendous asset to the Office of Student Affairs.”
