Jevita R. Rogers, director of student financial aid at George Mason University in Fairfax, Va., will lead the student finance and employment office at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs.
Rogers’ appointment, which will begin Aug. 8, was announced by Homer Wesley, vice chancellor, Student Success and Enrollment Management.
The UCCS Office of Student Financial Aid and Student Employment is responsible for the administration of public and private grants and scholarships, helping students with student loans and assisting with on- and off-campus employment.
“George Mason is a highly respected public university that serves a student demographic that is very similar to UCCS,” Wesley said. “Jevita Rogers’ experience and track record of success will serve UCCS students and their families well.”
Rogers replaces Lee Ingalls Noble, who had retired in 2009 but returned to the university to serve as interim director since January. Noble was appointed interim director following the resignation of Robert Bode. Noble was director of the Office of Student Financial Aid from 1984 to 2009.
Rogers began as director of the Office of Student Financial Aid at Mason in 2001. The office distributed more than $277 million in financial aid to 14,500 of the 35,000 students enrolled at Virginia’s largest university. She joined the office in 1992 as a financial aid counselor and also served as assistant director and acting director. Her professional career in student financial aid began in 1989.
“I am most excited to be joining the UCCS student success team and look forward to assisting UCCS students and families with financing their education as well as assisting students to become educated consumers along the way,” Rogers said.
