The director of undergraduate programs for the College of Business at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs has a new title.

Greg Augspurger now is director of advising and orientation. He will be responsible for universitywide academic advising and new student orientation and will report to Barbara Gaddis, executive director of the Division of Student Success. Gaddis will have overall responsibility for student advising, student retention and the Office of First Year Experience.

"Greg brings a unique combination of experience as an academic adviser, as a financial adviser in private practice and as a college-level administrator," said Homer Wesley, vice chancellor for Student Success and Enrollment Management. "I believe his experiences will provide students an excellent advising experience."

As director of undergraduate programs for the College of Business since 2008, Augspurger managed daily operations of the college's undergraduate programs including providing career planning and academic guidance to current and future students. He also helped with the implementation of schedule changes to accommodate nontraditional students, coordinated undergraduate certificate and extended studies programs, and managed enrollments and adjunct faculty to ensure students received required courses in a timely manner.

"I'm very excited about making this move," Augspurger said. "I know that I get the chance to lead a great group of people and have the opportunity to implement changes that will have a positive impact on campus."

Augspurger earned a bachelor's degree from Wabash College, Crawfordsville, Ind., a master's in counseling and human services from UCCS, and a master's of business administration from UCCS.

He replaces Sue Mitchell, who retired from UCCS on July 1 after 21 years, including almost 12 years as director of the Student Success Center.
