Administrative history

The Admissions Office provides prospective students and their families with information and counselling regarding the selection of - and enrolment in - undergraduate programs at Trinity Western University. Admissions personnel carry out a wide range of services and functions, including high school visits, representation at college and career fairs, on-campus visitation programs and campus tours, individual appointments with Admissions Counsellors, and academic advising and pre-registration for new students. This Office is responsible for the distribution of all information related to Trinity Western University and its undergraduate programs, including application procedures and policies and the Undergraduate Academic Calendar. The Admissions Office serves as a liaison between prospective and new undergraduate students and such University Departments as Financial Aid, Enrolment Services, and the Front Desk (Housing).
Prior to 1984, admissions functions were administered by the Registrar's Office. Admissions became a separate department ca. 1985.

Admissions Office Directors have included the following:
Guy Saffold, 1979-1981
Don Balzer, ca. 1982-1983
James (Jim) Cunningham, 1983-1988
Arvid Olson, 1989-1991 (Kirk Kauffeldt, Associate Director)
Kirk Kauffeldt, 1991-1995 (Mary Ellen Kuehl, Cam Lee, and Karen Manzer, Associate Directors)
Cam Lee, 1995-1999 (Jeff Suderman, Associate Director)
Jeff Suderman, 2000 - 2004 (Sam Rehman and Shannon Demant, Associate Directors; in March 2004 Mary Stewart was hired as Associate Director of Undergraduate Admissions, to replace S. Demant, after a 16 month vacancy)

In 2003, Jeff Suderman was appointed Executive Director of Admissions, coordinating the work of the Undergraduate Admissions, School of Graduate Studies Admissions, and the Admissions Data Service Department. Sam Rehman was appointed to serve as the Director of Undergraduate Admissions. Tim Shulba was appointed Associate Director of Admissions. (Source: email announcement from Ron Kuehl, March 31, 2003)
In 2004, Jeff Suderman was appointed Vice President for Enrolment Management. (Source: email announcement from Neil Snider, August 12, 2004 ratified by the Board November 2004) Suderman left Trinity in August of 2006.

Brian Kerr, Director of Undergraduate Admissions (as per an email May 4, 2006
As per an email of January, 2007, Melissa Reed was Associate Director of Admissions.

The Director of the Admissions Office reports to the Vice President for Marketing and Enrolment Management (2003)
As of August, 2006, the reporting structure of this department was changed, such that admissions and recruitment functions, as well as comprehensive enrolment planning, were transferred to the office of the Vice President for External Relations

One sacrifice that affects many is to not have the heads of Enrollment Management and University Communications filled at this time. For the next one to two years, Derek Dawson will provide direct leadership to these areas of the University.
Both Brian Kerr, Executive Director of Admissions, and Laura Havercroft, Director of Admissions Sales Support, have assumed expanded roles. Laura has taken responsibility for managing our transfer student support processes and admissions events in addition to her existing responsibilities in admissions data services, admissions-related marketing, and online engagement. In addition to undergraduate admissions, Brian will assume leadership over our graduate and international (non-TWU Extension) recruiting through a newly-created role of Director of Graduate and International Recruiting.
