Director of Risk Response and Education and Director of Assessment Announced

Jack Kreman announced the appointment of Tiffani Ziemann as the director of risk response and education. Upon assuming this role, Ziemann will have three main focuses. She will be the primary staff contact for all chapter conduct issues. She will develop and enhance the Fraternity’s risk education endeavors to assist undergraduate members better manage their chapters and implement local risk prevention strategies. Additionally, this position serves on the Central Office’s member services team, working alongside chapter leadership consultants as they support chapters through risk related issues.

Ziemann will start this new position on April 9 and will work remotely from Boulder, Colo. A graduate of Bradley University and a member of Sigma Delta Tau National Sorority, Ziemann earned a Master of Arts degree in college student personnel from Bowling Green State University. She was chosen for this position due to more than 11 years of experience in student conduct while at Ithaca College, and her work as the Fraternity’s director of leadership education, which includes the creation of the new Presidents Excellence Institute, beginning in 2020. Her wealth of experience will pay dividends for the Fraternity and will also provide Ziemann a valuable experience.

With Ziemann assuming this role, Ken Tubbs transitions into the position of Director of Assessment. This new position provides the Fraternity an exciting opportunity to gain insight into priority areas and assist Delta Tau Delta as it makes strategic decisions on the future of the organization. Specifically, in this new role, he will report to and collaborate with the Fraternity’s CEO to design and execute an overall data strategy for Delta Tau Delta. Tubbs will continue to oversee the execution of the Fraternity Awards and Accreditation Report (FAAR). Additionally, he will collaborate with Central Office Staff members to enhance leadership development programs, alumni engagement and volunteer support. As needed, Tubbs will support the member services team to fulfill needs in the risk management pool of work.

Having first served as a leadership consultant during the 2011-2012 academic year after graduating from John Carroll University (Iota Iota Chapter), Tubbs received a Master’s in Higher Education Administration from Kent State University (Ohio) in 2014. With more than nine years of experience in higher education, Tubbs is an ideal person to assume this new role. He is currently pursuing a master’s degree in evaluation and measurement from Kent State. He will continue to work remotely from Cleveland, Ohio with the transition to his new role set to occur in April.
