Have an Idea for Food Services? Tell the Advisory Team
Our partnership with Aramark makes it important to keep track of what appears to be working well and what isn't. We also want to consider improvements, new ideas, or special promotions that the campus community would enjoy. A Food Services Advisory Team has been created to facilitate those discussions that includes:
  • George McClellan, vice chancellor for student affairs
  • Wade Smith, IPSGA student body president
  • Alexander Sanderson, IPSGA student body vice president of legislation
  • Jay Harris, director of physical plant
  • Janet Badia, professor and director of women's studies
  • Susan M. Anderson, head of public services library
  • JJ Garcia, office coordinator, MAP Center
  • Caitlyn DeLong, student representative for athletics
  • Eric May, Aramark food services director at IPFW
  • Joanna Boulanger, district manager for Aramark
  • Cyndy Elick, director of purchasing and support services (contract and APSAC representative)

If you have ideas or concerns you may email any team member (emails not listed can be found in the global address book in Outlook). There is also a Suggestions or Comments for Catering or Dining at IPFW survey in myIPFW under the My Home tab in the Surveys section. The survey results are regularly shared with the team.
