University statement on Dean of Students Resignation

Janine Sikes, Assistant VP of Public Affairs
May 30, 2017

Dr. Jen Day Shaw, University of Florida Dean of Students and Associate Vice President for Student Affairs, resigned today in lieu of non-renewal of her appointment. The university decided not to renew her appointment due to a critical error in judgment when she gave misleading and incomplete information in providing a positive reference to another university for Chris Loschiavo, a former Title IX coordinator at UF Student Affairs, who reported to Day Shaw. UF immediately terminated Loschiavo’s employment in late August when it learned he used his UF work computer account to purchase pornography.
