December 2018 Update: Working through The Registry, an agency that provides interim higher ed officers, I accepted a one-year interim role as Special Assistant to the President of Cottey College in Nevada, Missouri. My job was to get a new brand rolled out, help the campus better understand and embrace marketing, determine and craft the best configuration for the marketing department, and find a person to take over as Director of Marketing before I leave.
The new Executive Director of Marketing and Communications begins 7 January 2019, and a digital marketing agency begins on 3 January. My remaining three months at Cottey will be spent mentoring the new Executive Director and assisting the agency in renovating the website.
Now considering new opportunities beginning April of 2019.
