Dr. Adams became Dean for the Office of Student Development while Dr. Cosby was named Assistant to the Vice President for Student Affairs. Also, in an effort to change student’s perceptions of the office, all judicial functions were removed from the office and turned over to a local part-time attorney who served as the Director of Student Judicial at the time. This director reported directly to the Vice President for Student Affairs. Two additional programs were added to the Office of Student Development in the late 1960s — programs and services for international students and the Institute of Black Culture.

With Dr. Tom Goodale in the major leadership role of Dean for Student Services, the Office of Student Development’s name was changed to the Office for Student Services. Most of the services and functions of the office with Student Judicial Affairs rejoined the Office for Student Services. An Assistant Dean for Minority Affairs was also added during this timeframe. In the early 1990s, programs and services for international students were transferred to Academic Affairs, and the Institute of Hispanic/Latino Cultures was added to the Office for Student Services.
