Jennifer D. Winge has been named dean of admissions at The College of Wooster, effective Sept. 19. As dean, Winge will manage and supervise the daily operations of the admissions office. She will report to Scott Friedhoff, vice president for enrollment and college relations, and work with him on strategic planning, goal setting, and communications for the office.
Winge joins Wooster from Allegheny College in Meadville,Pa., where she currently serves as dean of enrollment. She began her career at Allegheny as an admissions counselor in 1996 and has held a succession of progressively responsible positions there, including associate director of admissions from 2001 to 2006, director from 2006 to 2010, and dean of enrollment since 2010. She also worked as director of college counseling at The Kiski School in Saltsburg, Penn.
Wooster and Allegheny are both members of the Great Lakes Colleges Association, as well as Colleges That Change Lives.
“Jenn is far and away the best dean or director I have worked with in my 30 years in the profession,” Friedhoff said. “She is tremendously bright, a strategic thinker and gifted communicator who has earned unqualified admiration and respect from her colleagues and peers. She will be a terrific addition to Wooster’s enrollment team.”
“As a graduate of a liberal arts college myself, I value Wooster’s mission and admire its history and reputation as one of the nation’s best,” Winge said. “It will be an honor to lead and learn from the members of the admissions staff and contribute to achieving the college’s strategic objectives. My family and I are eager to settle in and enjoy all the diverse opportunities that the college and the city of Wooster offer.”
Winge earned a bachelor’s degree in English, magna cum laude, from Allegheny College.
