Julie Amon was named associate chancellor of academic services and director of the Educational Opportunity Fund (EOF) Program in October 2011. She oversees the Division of Academic Services, which includes TRiO Student Support Services, the Rutgers–Camden Learning Center and Disability Services, the EOF program, the Instructional Design and Technology unit, off-campus and online programs, and the registrar’s office. She also oversees the Rutgers–Camden Undergraduate Student Success Initiative launched in December 2011 and focused on identifying ways to improve the academic success and student experience of undergraduates and helping more students successfully graduate from Rutgers–Camden.
Prior to arriving at Rutgers–Camden, Amon served for more than nine years as the assistant dean for first-year students at Case Western Reserve University. In this role, she oversaw first-year student academic affairs including the faculty-based first-year advising system; designed and implemented the academic experience of all new student orientation programs; collaborated with faculty to manage first-year course enrollments; and participated in recruitment activities and in other enrollment management initiatives. Also while at Case Western Reserve, Julie Amon chaired the campus-wide Retention Taskforce and served on the taskforce that implemented new general education requirements.
A professional with extensive experience in first-year student experience issues and academic advising, Amon led orientation, convocation, and other campus events while at Wayne State University. At Northern Kentucky University, she helped develop learning communities, designed a common curriculum for use in University 101 courses for undecided first-year students, built a peer advising program, and provided advising to undecided and at-risk students.
Associate Chancellor Amon earned her doctorate in higher education from the University of Pennsylvania, a master’s degree in higher education and college student personnel from Kent State University, and a bachelor’s degree in anthropology from the University of Colorado at Boulder. Her dissertation research focused on how men pursuing STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) disciplines perceive the supportiveness of their campus environment. Student learning, engagement, and success are professional passions and research interests.
Julie Amon is a member of the National Academic Advising Association, the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators, and the American College Personnel Association. In 2011, the National Resource Center for First-Year Experience and Students in Transition named her one of ten Outstanding First-Year Student Advocates.
