As students funneled into Front Range Community College’s Larimer Campus this semester, the Larimer Campus’ Student Life faculty has seemed to have funneled themselves out.
As of January 20th, all full time and permanent non-student employees have left their positions in the student life office.
According to the newly designated director of student life, Timothy Mellon, the college is working to fill the positions, but may not have the department restaffed until mid-March or early April.
Multiple sources also confirmed that the college is still working to determine how the new employee structure of the college is going to work.
In an email shared with The Reporter, the initial drafts of the reorganization show the college going into a budget deficit.
The college cabinet has since determined that they will be stopping all hiring processes, and that they will not be posting new positions until the charts are revisited.
The cabinet is aiming to reach a budget neutral goal and are currently considering different models – per the same email.
For now Mellon, along with a part time staff, will be operating the Larimer Campus Student Life operation for the foreseeable future.
Student life services are currently expected to remain unaffected through the spring semester, with clubs and SGA still receiving support and funding through the department.
However, according to Mellon and other sources within the department, it is possible that in the Fall of 2023 that large student organizations, such as SGA and the Front Range Reporter, will be combining across campuses to make singular college wide groups.
