The University of Notre Dame’s police, fire and risk management and safety departments will be aligned under a new Office of Campus Safety to be directed by Michael Seamon, who has been promoted to associate vice president.

Seamon was appointed assistant vice president for university events and protocol in 2008 and a year later also became the University’s director of game-day operations. In his new position, he also will oversee the University’s emergency preparedness processes and continue to lead game-day initiatives, where he reports to the University’s president, Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C.

Seamon previously served as executive assistant to Affleck-Graves, executive assistant to the vice president for finance, and assistant to the vice president for business operations.

A Notre Dame alumnus with bachelor’s and master’s degrees in business, Seamon worked from 1995 to 1997 as the first director of sales and marketing – and one of the first three employees – for the Tampa Bay Rays baseball franchise. He was involved in activities related to stadium renovation, the sale of private suites and season tickets, design and marketing of team merchandise and other responsibilities.

While earning his master of business administration degree, Seamon served as an intern to the University’s associate athletic director and business manager and later became the department’s retail manager. He was head football manager during his senior year at Notre Dame.
