Ron Wilks was promoted to Vice President of Enrollment Management, effective July 1, 2018. He has worked at the University since the summer of 1991 under the leadership of Mark Weigand. He also completed an undergraduate degree in history and a master’s degree in business administration from the University of Indianapolis.
“As I thought about how to go about finding the talent to continue the work that Mark did, I realized that we had access to someone in our own backyard,” President Robert Manuel said.
Wilks has been recognized across the nation as an expert in admissions and enrollment management strategies by the Indiana National Association for College Admissions Counseling (serving as president in 2005) and its National Organization (NACAC). His work has also been acknowledged with several awards including the 2008 Indiana Association for College Admissions Counseling Distinguished Service Award, and he sits on the national advisory board for the University’s inquiry management software system.
