Principal Decision Makers Several key decision makers are present in this case. The first of which is Susan Mayberry, VP of Student Affairs. Susan has been given the task of increasing the number of partnerships between faculty and the division of academic affairs. She has specifically been asked to find ways to improve the academic advising of students. This case study is written from the perspective of Susan. Leslie King, director of academic advising doesn 't know what to do and is frustrated about the current system and faculty involvement. John Clinton, Dean of Students, knows about the student survey and Leslie 's frustration because she reports to him. Sheila Jimenez, Director of Career Services, is also John Clinton’s subordinate. Sheila has proposed that Career Services join together or take over advising. Sheila has previous experience with this from her last school.
