Executive Director of Enrollment Services
And Director of Admissions


 MAILED:  Aug. 4, 2004

EAU CLAIRE - Kris Anderson has been named executive director of enrollment services and director of admissions at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, effective immediately, Interim Provost Steve Tallant announced this week.

Anderson has served as interim director of admissions and enrollment services since January 2003.

"As an interim director, Kris has done an exceptional job of leading our admissions and enrollment services programs," Tallant said. "The fall 2004 freshmen class is one of the best ever in terms of ACT scores and other academic credentials. And UW-Eau Claire received a record 7,300 applications for the 2,025 spots available to new freshmen this fall. I have complete confidence in Kris' ability to lead the university through the increasingly complex admissions and enrollment management processes."

Anderson, who was appointed as UW-Eau Claire associate director of admissions in fall 2001, has more than 10 years of experience in university admissions. She previously served as assistant director of admissions at UW-Superior and as an admissions counselor at UW-River Falls.

She holds a bachelor's degree from Albright College in Reading, Pa., and a master's degree from The College of William and Mary, Williamsburg, Va. Anderson currently is pursuing a doctorate at the University of St. Thomas.
