Patti McSteen, interim senior associate vice president of student affairs and dean of students, announced Friday her departure from Ohio University after more than 25 years with the university.
McSteen will be accepting a role as senior associate vice president and deputy of global campus safety at New York University. She will leave OU on Feb. 4, according to a university news release.
A transition plan within the Division of Student Affairs is being finalized and will be announced in the coming weeks.
McSteen was also previously the director and creator of the Margaret Boyd Scholars Program, as well as the Student Review and Consultation Committee.
“I want to thank Ohio University, all of my colleagues over the years, and most of all the students that I have been privileged to work with,” McSteen said in the release. “It has been a pleasure and an honor to be a part of Ohio University, and I will always be proud to be a Bobcat.”
