Resident Deans

Jovana and Nikola Sladojevic

Resident Deans Snell-Hitchcock

Jovana and Nikola, our newly appointed Resident Deans for Snell-Hitchcock Hall, came to the U.S. from Serbia in 2009 when Nick started his Ph.D. and postdoctoral research at the University of Michigan. Nick is an MD and vascular biologist and Jovana is a plant biologist. Jovana was an assistant researcher at the University of Michigan Botanical Garden and Herbarium while Nick focused on his research about how small blood vessels respond to stroke, cancer, diabetes, and aging. After the completion of Nick’s Ph.D. and postdoc in 2014, the pair came to the University of Chicago where Nikola joined the cardiovascular research lab. Today, Nikola is a newly appointed Assistant Professor of Medicine at Cardiology while Jovana is studying at Fox College to become a Physical Therapist’s Assistant.

At UChicago, the couple have been serving as the Halperin House Resident Heads in Renée Granville Grossman Residential Commons for five years. Jovana loves to bake for her residents and the pair enjoy organizing fun events and trips on campus, around Chicago, and beyond! Nick, Jovana, and their energetic kids Damjan (8) and Kosta (6) are excited to join us as the new Resident Deans of Snell-Hitchcock Hall. The whole family looks forward to their time in the Snell-Hitchcock Hall community and can’t wait to provide a host of programming to engage students throughout the coming year.
