Jill Donovan
Assistant Director – 732-224-2195 – jdonovan@brookdalecc.edu

Jill has worked in Student Life at Brookdale since 2002.  A long-time Monmouth County resident, she knew about all the great things that Brookdale had to offer.

Jill spends the majority of her time working with Clubs and Organizations in the office, as well as planning department events and programs.  She loves to help students plan a program from beginning to end, and watch them grow in the process.  She also is the department’s liaison to the Advising and Counseling Office at the College, helping them plan student-focused programs.  Additionally, she is an adjunct advisor and instructor of HUDV-107, First Year Experience.  Jill is also a co-supervisor of the Student Ambassador Program.

A member of NACA, The National Association for Campus Activities, she enjoys traveling to their conferences with students and seeing what the next great programs are for Brookdale.

Lauren Brutsman
Assistant Director – 732-224-2392 – lbrutsman@brookdalecc.edu 


Christopher Jeune
Administrator for Judicial Affairs & Student Information – 732-224-2096 – cjeune@brookdalecc.edu

Christopher joined the staff in 2009 after completing a graduate assistantship in the Office of Judicial Affairs at Ramapo College of New Jersey, where he was also an undergraduate student.  Originally from North Jersey, he has begun to embrace the Jersey Shore as his home, and hates the dreaded “b” word.  You might still catch him calling it Taylor Ham though…

His work in the office centers mainly around student conduct and volunteer service.  He works with students who have violated Brookdale’s Code of Conduct so that they can understand how their behavior impacts both themselves and the community around them.  Additionally, he plans large and small-scale volunteer opportunities for Brookdale students, and tracks all of the club and organization volunteer efforts.  He also works with the Student Life Board’s finance committee and club advisory board, and updates the department’s web site.

He is a member of ASCA – The Association for Student Conduct Administrators and enjoys attending their annual conference, and it’s not just because it happens to take place in Florida during February.
