Princeton University. Office of the Executive Vice President
The Office of the Executive Vice President was created by the Board of Trustees in 2005 to administer several existing offices, including campus life, human resources, public safety, and facilities among others. Reporting directly to the Office of the President, the Office of the Executive Vice President executes functions once led by the now-defunct Vice President for Administrative Affairs (1972-1988) and now-defunct Vice President for Administration (2001-2005).
During its existence from 1972-1988, the Office of the Vice President for Administrative Affairs had general oversight of Princeton University's administrative services, including human resources, campus security, health services, and purchasing. Known previously as the Executive Vice Director of Administrative and Personnel Services, the Vice President for Administrative Affairs was responsible for, in cooperation with other administrative offices as well as academic departments and advisory councils, establishing policies and procedures guiding the operations of these units. The only individual to ever serve as Vice President for Administrative Affairs was Anthony J. Maruca. Following his retirement in 1988 many of the position's duties were reassigned to the newly created Office of the Vice President for Finance and Administration.
In 2001, President Shirley Tilghman's reorganization of university functions split that office and created the position of Vice President for Administration, first occupied by Charles Kalmbach beginning June 1, 2002. Mark Burstein assumed the office on August 2, 2004, and the following year the Board of Trustees renamed the position Executive Vice President, with Burstein serving as the first in university history until his departure on June 7, 2013, to become president of Lawrence University. Treby Williams succeeded him and was hired permanently to the post on November 18, 2013.
