Heather Medley
Director of Admissions
Honors College

Executing growth through leadership and creativity, Heather has helped catapult the Honors College into a new light. Her fresh ideas, positive attitude, and teamwork have changed the culture and landscape of the college. Moving the admissions application online made the application more accessible, increased the number of applicants, and increased productivity within the college. Re-inventing a program designed to engage exceptional area high school students was developed and marketed by Heather resulting in student enrollment within weeks of the initial ask. A series of Advisor-to-Advisor meetings were established across campus to talk about Honors College and how collaborations could help all colleges achieve their goals. Heather continues to create "Access Programs" for Honors students to move more quickly and easily through their chosen curriculum while making the transition to graduate work seamless. Heather does not just show up; she executes the plan with style!
