Alma R. Sealine is joining the University of Illinois at UrbanaChampaign as the new Director of University Housing, effective July 15, 2013, pending approval from the Board of Trustees. Sealine has been serving as Director of Housing at Case Western Reserve University since March 2006. She will be replacing Jack Collins who is retiring after a distinguished career in higher education and 15 years of service to the University of Illinois. As Director of University Housing, Sealine will be responsible for leading, planning, and directing the complete operations of the unit, a self-supporting auxiliary enterprise within the Division of Student Affairs. University Housing serves more than 10,000 undergraduate students and graduate students and their families in 24 residence halls and 1,150 on-campus apartments. Working with academic affairs and the faculty, they offer living-learning communities and many other programs that create unique learning environments in the residence halls and apartments. They also meet the dining needs of Housing residents as well as serving as the primary catering operation on campus. Before coming to Illinois, Sealine served in various positions at Case Western. She acted as Assistant Director of Residence Life, Assistant Director of Campus Living, and most recently as Director of Housing, where she was responsible for the operation of 46 residential buildings and the housing of 3,700 students. She serves as an active member of the Association of College and University Housing Officers-International (ACUHO-I), where she was president in 2011-2012. Additionally, she was a faculty member for the National Housing Training Institute and the South African Housing Training Institute of Stellenbosch University in South Africa. Sealine holds a bachelor’s degree in Communications and Sociology from William Jewell College and a master’s degree in College Student Personnel Administration from Indiana University-Bloomington.

New Director of Housing


Welcome “...Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end …” This story can fit 175-225 words. If your newsletter is folded and mailed, this story will appear on the back. So, it’s a good idea to make it easy to read at a glance. A question and answer session is a good way to quickly capture the attention of readers. You can either compile questions that you’ve received since the last edition or you can summarize some generic questions that are frequently asked about your organization. A listing of names and titles of managers in your organization is a good way to give your newsletter a personal touch. If your organization is small, you may want to list the names of all employees. If you have any prices of standard products or services, you can include a listing of those here. You may want to refer your readers to any other forms of communication that you’ve created for your organization. You can also use this space to remind readers to mark their calendars for a regular event, such as a breakfast meeting for vendors every third Tuesday of the month, or a biannual charity auction. If space is available, this is a good place to insert a clip art image or some other graphic.

Primary Business Address Address Line 2 Address Line 3 Address Line 4 Phone: 555-555-5555 Fax: 555-555-5555 E-mail: someone@example.com This would be a good place to insert a short paragraph about your organization. It might include the purpose of the organization, its mission, founding date, and a brief history. You could also include a brief list of the types of products, services, or programs your organization offers, the geographic area covered (for example, western U.S. or European markets), and a profile of the types of customers or members served. It would also be useful to include a contact name for readers who want more information about the organization.

This story can fit 150-200 words. One benefit of using your newsletter as a promotional tool is that you can reuse content from other marketing materials, such as press releases, market studies, and reports. While your main goal of distributing a newsletter might be to sell your product or service, the key to a successful newsletter is making it useful to your readers. A great way to add useful content to your newsletter is to develop and write your own articles, or include a calendar of upcoming events or a special offer that promotes a new product.


You can also research articles or find “filler” articles by accessing the World Wide Web. You can write about a variety of topics but try to keep your articles short. Much of the content you put in your newsletter can also be used for your Web site. Microsoft Publisher offers a simple way to convert your newsletter to a Web publication. So, when you’re finished writing your newsletter, convert it to a Web site and post it.
