Irene Stevens, Butler University’s dean of student life, will retire at the end of the school year.
Stevens has served under five university presidents and has seen the university double in student enrollment during her 15 years at Butler.
“I have seen the university evolve from a local institution to a regional institution,” Stevens said. “It has been fun to watch Butler grow in such a way because of not only its athletics but because of its programming and its students and the people here.”
Retirement will come with more time for travel, golf and community service, she said.
Stevens said she will miss the people at Butler most when she leaves her office in Atherton Union for the last time.
“The people have made this job what it is,” Stevens said. “Working on a college campus keeps me young.”
