ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (June 23, 2014) – Emily Crisman has joined the staff of Eckerd College’s Program for Experienced Learners as an admission counselor, bringing significant experience in higher education recruiting and marketing.
Crisman, who has nine years of recruitment experience, much of it in higher education, will help coordinate student recruitment activities by seeking corporate referrals, attending career and education fairs, and assisting in creation of strategies for attracting more students to Eckerd’s Program for Experienced Learners.
The Program for Experienced Learners (PEL) gives busy adults the opportunity to complete a bachelor’s degree in a classroom-learning environment. Small class sizes and high-quality faculty create a premium college experience, along with the opportunity to network with other professionals. Students can take classes at PEL’s St. Petersburg or Tampa locations.
“We are very excited to have Emily joining us,” said Olivier Debure, Administrative Director of PEL. “Her background in enrollment management, academic advising and student retention is exactly what we need as we continue to strengthen the program.”
Before joining PEL, Crisman was the Director of Marketing and Recruitment for ITT Technical Institute in Troy, Mich. Prior to that position, she was Director of Admissions for Marygrove College in Detroit, Mich., where she was responsible for restructuring the recruitment, enrollment and academic advising teams.
Crisman earned a degree in communications from Albion College and received her M.A. in Human Resource Management from Marygrove College.
