Red Bud woman named as new dean of students for Lindenwood

Dr. Suzy Jones

Dr. Suzy Jones has been named the new dean of students at Lindenwood University-Belleville.

Dr. Jones is known to nearly everyone on campus by her nickname, ‘Dr. Sparkles,’ and that truly represents who she is and what she will bring to this role,” said Dr. Brett Barger, president of the Lindenwood Belleville campus. “She does her job with great excitement and enthusiasm, and she brings the same qualities out in the people who work for her.”

Barger said it was of the utmost importance to fill the dean’s role with a person who was in touch with the students and who would work tirelessly to advocate for the things important to them. Jones, who has worked at Lindenwood Belleville since 2015, aspires to live up to the expectation.
