Monday, January 14, 2013

Wichita State University’s Center for Community Support and Research has restructured its management.

The following briefly outlines several new positions and the management structure at CCSR.

Seth Bate – director of leadership development

Amy Delamaide – director of community and organizational development

Tara Gregory – director of research and evaluation

Randy Johnson – director of mental health initiatives

Heather Perkins – director of operations and finance

Kevin Bomhoff – director of strategic development

Scott Wituk – executive director

CCSR helps individuals, organizations and communities with leadership development, organizational capacity building, community-based consulting, research and evaluation and through its Mental Health Consumer initiative.

In 2012, the center helped more than 100 Kansas-based nonprofits, community coalitions and government agencies.

“For several years, CCSR has focused on a core set of service areas to serve Wichita and the state of Kansas,” Wituk said. “This focus has allowed CCSR to become more responsive to our partners. At the same time, I’ve recognized that there were limits to our current approach in effectively managing our services and recognized we have qualified staff who have helped develop each of these services. Some had already taken on additional responsibilities and serving in management positions, while others were certainly positioned to do so. In addition, what we’ve found is that sometimes our partners are interested in receiving help in one service area, while other times we bring multiple service areas to a project or initiative. I’m really excited about this new structure as it allows us to respond to both types of situations, as well as develop new service areas if those opportunities present themselves.”
