Assistant Vice President for Student Life and Executive Director of Housing & Food Services, Pam Schreiber has been elected Vice President to the Executive Board of the Association of College and University Housing Officers – International (ACUHO-I). Pam will serve in the position during 2020, followed by one year as President-Elect and the next year as President.
The Executive Board sets ACUHO-I's strategic path and ensures availability of resources to best meet the needs of the members and the college-housing profession. ACUHO-I is home to more than 17,000 professionals, representing 1.2 million on-campus students from around the globe.
In the candidate information packet provided for the election, Pam included a background reason for running. “My pursuit of a career in campus housing stems back to my own transformational experience as a first-generation college student and the significance of my time living in residence,” Pam wrote. “That experience directly impacted my growth and development in ways I never anticipated but will forever value. My commitment to the field is unwavering, and I believe that transforming students’ lives remains our primary purpose.”
Before her current role at the University of Washington, Pam was Director of University Housing at Florida Gulf Coast University. In past years, Pam also served in a number of roles within the ACUHO-I organization.
“Pam’s election to the ACUHO-I Board is a fitting testament to her amazing leadership abilities,” said Denzil Suite, UW Vice President for Student Life. “She in one of the most respected leaders on campus, and I have no doubt she will make outstanding contributions to ACUHO-I.”
Pam added, “As a Board member, I will focus on developing relationships grounded in trust and respect and will practice listening carefully, especially to voices that have historically been silenced, to ensure the work of the Association is responsive to members’ needs.”
