Thomas H. Stein has been named vice president of enrollment management at Tusculum College, officials announced today.
Stein has held a similar position for the past 18 years at Otterbein University in Westerville, Ohio. He steps into the position previously held by Jacquelyn D. Elliott, who will soon be leaving the college in order to complete her doctoral work.
Dr. Nancy B. Moody, president of the college, commended the success of Ms. Elliott during her five-year tenure at Tusculum in the growth of the residential student population and wished her continued success in pursuit of her terminal degree at George Washington University.
With thirty-two years experience in higher education, Stein has experience in marketing, fundraising, strategic planning and working with students through the enrollment and financial aid processes. He will take over responsibilities at Tusculum College on April 18.
“We are very pleased that Thomas Stein will be joining us at Tusculum College,” said Moody. “His experience and success in enrollment management will support continuing success as the college builds upon current strategies to grow our adult programs.”
He holds a bachelor of arts degree from Ohio Northern University, a master of science degree from the University of Dayton and a doctorate of philosophy from the University of Toledo.
At Otterbein University he was responsible for all enrollment oversight for traditional students and served as one of five members of the President’s Cabinet. Under his guidance, the Otterbein enrollment division increased full-time enrollment by 67 percent, from 1,500 students to more than 2,500 students during his tenure. In addition, he has worked with extensive marketing plans and with financial aid policies to enhance enrollment at the institution and meet institutional budgets.
Prior to joining Otterbein, Stein was Dean of Admissions at Wilmington College in Ohio, where he also served as a member of the President’s Council.
In Lewistown, Ohio, where he currently resides, Stein serves as president of the Indian Lake School Board. He is also a member of the Indian Lake Growth and Development Committee.
Stein is married to Kristine Stein and has two adult sons, Kyle and Carl.
