January 18, 1993

Joanne A. Goldwater, director of housing at Western Maryland College, has been named president of the Mid-Atlantic Association of College and University Housing Officers, a professional service organization of housing officers involved in higher education in the region.

Ms. Goldwater, who is responsible for housing operations for all WMC students in college residence halls and apartments, assumed the presidency during the organization's annual conference sponsored by Goucher College in mid-January.

She is serving a standard one-year term, followed by a one-year term as past president.

As the association's president and main representative at the national level, Ms. Goldwater will encourage others in her profession to get involved in college and university housing issues, and to maintain an upbeat attitude despite the tough economic times. She also said she would try to improve communication among the organization's members.

"During my term, I will place high value on our differences and common threads so we can improve the level of tolerance on college campuses," Ms. Goldwater said.

She has been on the association's executive board since 1988. In 1990 she was given the Outstanding New Professional Award, and in 1991 she received the group's Outstanding Service Award.

Ms. Goldwater, who has worked for Western Maryland College for more than five years, manages on-campus student housing during the academic year and summer. She also acts as TC mediator in resolving housing issues and supervises several residence life coordinators.

She lives on the Western Maryland campus.
