Daniel Francis has joined Limestone University as its first Director of the Community Values Office.
In his role with the Community Values Office that operates in the Student Success Division, Francis oversees the Limestone’s Code of Student Conduct and the processes associated with violations of the policies. He fosters a foundation of support, restorative practices, and encouragement for all students as he emphasizes the development of campus policies and procedures to improve the overall student experience. Francis educates students on their rights and responsibilities as members of an academic community and helps them develop the decision-making skills necessary to act with personal and social responsibility. He will also serve as the advisor for Limestone’s Student Government Association and as the Title IX Deputy Coordinator.
“I am ecstatic to be welcomed into the Limestone University community,” said Francis, who started his new role in January. “My goal in all interactions with students is to be fair, transparent, and consistent, and to facilitate learning and holistic care for the student throughout the conduct process. I also carry a passion for community engagement and look forward to working in the Gaffney and Cherokee County area.”
Prior to his position at Limestone, Francis was the Assistant Director for Housing and Residential Life at the University of South Carolina Upstate.
“Daniel is a proven student affairs professional with experience managing student conduct and developing community standards,” said Stacey Mason, Limestone’s Associate Provost of Student Success. “His concentration on educating students about personal accountability and their roles as community members will foster an environment that supports student success.”
Francis holds a Master of Education in Counselor Education from Clemson University and a Bachelor of Science in Experimental Psychology from the University of South Carolina Upstate.
