Carl G. MartinCarl G. MartinStudent Services

Carl G. Martin, Assistant Vice President for Student Services, has devoted himself for 28 years to developing opportunities and services for underrespresented students, and along the way accepted some of the most important challenges the University has faced. His accomplishments and his active presence have touched the lives and sensibilities of a broad segment of the campus community. Beginning his career here as Coordinator of Counseling Services for EOP, Martin has since held titles of instructor, advisor, director, associate dean and assistant vice president - and yet he remains every bit the outstanding counselor for students that he was more than two decades ago. As administrator he has managed the Student Services department with excellence, brought outstanding speakers to campus since 1986 for the Martin Luther King/Black History Month Luncheon, and was instrumental in creating the Spellman Achievement Awards, in getting funding for the Science and Technology Entry Program, and in establishing a National Coalition Building Institute chapter on campus.
