TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Along with the new academic year, came a
change in the organizational structure of the Athletic Academic Support
Office. Under the Direction of Mark Meleney, the department was
reorganized in order to maximize the productivity of its employees,
enable the continued development of a comprehensive support program for
student athletes, and provide more opportunities for program and staff

“By reorganizing the department, we have not only provided
opportunities for advancement for academic counselors, but have been
able to capitalize on Amy and Kevin’s leadership skills, by asking them
to oversee the day-to-day development of the program in their specific
areas of expertise,” Director of Academics Mark Meleney said. “I feel
very confident that the new structure will prove beneficial to the
student athletes and the Athletic Department as a whole.”

Under the new structure, there are two Assistant Directors, Three
Academic Counselors, A
Senior Secretary, and four other full-time OPS employees.

The Full-Time Staff Includes:
