Brazil eventually won the title New assistant to the president named By Laurie Albrechtsen Signpost news editor As a direct result of the Strategic planning, changes are being made in the administration at Weber State University. Dean of Student Administrative Services Emil O. Hanson will become the new assis tant to WSU President Paul H. Thompson. Carol Berrey, assistant to the president will take the place of Robert H. DeBoer, assistant to the president for government relations. DeBoer retired from WSU in June. His duties willbe overseen by Provost Robert B. Smith and assistant Provost Kathleen M. Lukken. STRATEGIC PLANNING FORCE The duties previously performed under the direction of Hanson such as registration, STARS, graduation, student records, admissions, scholarships and financial aid, will now be overseen by Lukken, under the leadership of Smith. Hanson's responsibilities were previously under the umbrella of the vice president for student services Marie Kotter. All of the remaining student services will stay under Kotter. Hanson said that his duties soars with the president will mainly involve special project research. He has done a lot of research in his 28 years with WSU and was a logical choice for the job. He will be retiring in a year and a half and has seen many changes in the university during that time. He has seen it change from a two year school to a four year institution in 1962 and then to a University in the 1990's. The Strategic Planning Task Force recommended a change in positioning, placing many of the student programs under the direction of Provost Smith. "I reported to Marie Kotter as the dean. Kathleen Lukken will be doing what I did. They may hire someone to replace me, but we are in the middle of reorganization now," Hanson said. WSU has taken on a whole new approach. The open-door policy has been changed. We are now working toward enrollment management, which is the new buzz word. We are in a recruiting mode we haven't ever really been in this position before.

|Description||Weber's current student newspaper, the Signpost, first appeared on September 29, 1937. For two years prior to that time, campus news was disseminated via announcements posted on a bulletin board known as the "Signpost". As a result, the masthead of the first issue of the paper itself featured a rudimentary wooden sign with the title spelled out in rustic-looking letters. Over the years the paper has been published continuously, though the look, size and style has changed several times.|
