Associate director of University Health Services Jamie Shutter will begin leading UHS as interim director starting in September.

She is taking over for UHS director Jeanne Carpenter, who announced her retirement earlier
this month.

“Jamie has always prioritized the needs of students in every decision she makes,” Carpenter said. “She is an excellent choice for interim director, and our students will be in good hands with Jamie leading the organization.”

Shutter’s accomplishments as associate director include starting the UT Wellness Network, overseeing the redesign of the UHS website, and developing and increasing the visibility of the Center for Students in Recovery, Carpenter said.

Shutter was one of two people recognized by the University as 2011 Outstanding Supervisors, said Chris Brownson, associate vice president for student affairs, who appointed Shutter.

“Jamie has a wealth of knowledge and experience in college health. She has a passion for working with students and has been a campus leader for promoting student wellness,” Brownson said. “She is open, fair and makes decisions based on what is in the best interest of students.”
