Judson University has hired Molly Smith as the new director of Admissions. Her first day was Monday, Oct. 10.
Smith has worked in higher education admissions since 1999. “Molly has 20-plus years of experience in Christian higher-ed admissions that will be so valuable for Judson,” said Nancy Binger, vice president for Enrollment Services and Strategic Planning. “I expect her to come in and hit the ground running and take our Admissions and Marketing efforts to the next level.
“She is creative and innovative, and I look forward to seeing her expand our efforts as we look to grow Judson’s traditional enrollment.”
Prior to this appointment, Smith served as the director of Traditional Undergraduate Admissions, and most recently, as the director of Admissions and Recruitment at Regent University in Virginia Beach, Va. She has also worked on Admissions teams at California-based Azusa Pacific University, Fresno Pacific University and William Jessup University.
She is also the vice president of finance for the board of the North American Coalition for Christian Admissions Personnel (NACCAP), a group representing more than 300 college, graduate school and seminary admissions personnel and high school guidance counselors throughout North America.
Smith and her husband, Brett, have one son and live in Elgin, Ill.
