Trinity University Names New Director of Campus & Community Involvement


Jamie Thompson promoted to leadership position that shapes programs across many departments


SAN ANTONIO - Jamie Thompson '05 has been promoted to director of Campus & Community Involvement at Trinity University. Serving as assistant director of the office since 2009, she is seen as a leader with vision for a range of programs designed to offer students a rich and stimulating undergraduate experience, both in and out of the classroom.

As a member of the leadership team of Trinity's division of Student Affairs, Thompson will continue to plan, deliver, and evaluate activities of student organizations, new student orientation, parent programming, diversity programs, service programs, fraternity and sorority life, student government, and student-edited publications. 

"With her broad experience, institutional perspective, and excellent skill set, she is ideally suited to take on this important role at this time," said David Tuttle, associate vice president of Student Affairs and dean of Students.

Thompson replaces Raphael Moffett, who left Trinity recently to be vice president for Student Affairs at Langston University in Oklahoma.

She earned a bachelor's degree from Trinity in 2005 in business administration with concentrations in finance and management, and minors in Spanish and communication management. She also holds a master's degree in higher education administration from the University of Kansas.

Previously, she has worked as a coordinator at the Center for Student Leadership at the University of California at Berkeley and managed sorority recruitment for more than 900 women as part the Student Involvement & Leadership Center at the University of Kansas. While a Trinity student, she held internships at the North American Development Bank in San Antonio and the San Antonio Sports Foundation.  

Earlier this year, Thompson received the Pete Neville Award for Exemplary Service in Student Affairs at Trinity. While at Berkeley, she was named the Campus Life & Leadership Employee of the Year.
