A new director of Campus Safety has been selected. Keene State College Title IX Discrimination and Harassment Coordinator Jeffrey Maher was named the new Campus Safety director, according to Vice President for Student Affairs and Enrollment Management Kemal Atkins.

Atkins described Maher as “highly professional,” “approachable,” “very competent and skilled” and “student-centered.”

“[Maher has the] type of leadership abilities that our department and institution would benefit from,” Atkins said.

Maher will continue to act as the Title IX Discrimination and Harassment Coordinator in conjunction with being the director of Campus Safety.

However, the school will be hiring an investigator to work alongside Maher in his Title IX position. Within the next few days, a date will be finalized for Maher to begin his new position, according to Atkins.
