Glenda Humphreys Appointed Vice President for Human Resources

President Roseann Runte announced on Monday, April 7, the appointment of Glenda Humphreys as vice president for human resources.

Humphreys has worked at Old Dominion for more than 23 years, including the last 12 as director of human resources. She joined the university in 1984 as employee relations manager and was promoted to associate director of human resources in 1991. She holds a bachelor's degree in psychology from the College of William and Mary and an M.B.A. from Old Dominion.

"This appointment represents both a promotion, recognizing the excellence of her service, and an expansion of her duties to include hiring across the campus," Runte said in a campus-wide e-mail. "This will enable us to standardize some procedures and to attain a greater level of efficiency."

Also in her letter, Runte announced that Geneva Walker-Johnson's title will change to dean of students and chief student affairs officer. "Her position description will remain the same. The title more appropriately reflects her responsibilities," said Runte. Walker-Johnson previously held the title of interim vice president for student affairs.

In addition, Runte announced that the athletic department will now report to John R. Broderick, vice president for institutional advancement and chief of staff. The department previously reported to the president. "This follows the reporting line adopted by many universities and assures continuity as a new president arrives," she said.

"I am making these adjustments to assure the continued good functioning of the university and the ongoing amelioration of our academic and professional status and reputation."
