Serving not only as the Athletic Director but also as the Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students at Wesleyan College, Patty Gibbs has been firmly entrenched inthe lives of students across campus since 2002.
Acting as Athletic Director since 2009, she has had a hand in hiring the entire coaching staff that is currently in place. As a result, the department has seen an increased committment to recruiting and higher expectations for success over the course of the last four seasons. Even before Gibbs took over the leadership role within the department, her duties as Vice President of Student Affairs required oversight of Athletics, so she has had a vested interest in the program since her arrival on campus.
Gibb's role as the leader of the Student Affairs division on Wesleyan's campus allows her keep her finger on the pulse of student involvement in nearly every aspect of campus life. With Athletics, Student Activities, Food Services, Residence Life, Counseling, Career Development and Campus Police all under her supervision, there is not much that happens on campus that does not run through her office first.
Prior to joining the staff at Wesleyan, Gibbs served as the Associate Director of Admission and Financial Aid as well as the Director of Student Life at her alma mater College of St. Catherine-Minneapolis before moving on to become the Dean of Enrollment Services at Stephens College in Columbia, MO. She graduated from the College of St. Catherine in 1986 and returned to earn her Master's degree in Organizational Leadership from the college in 1996.
