Hullinger named director of Scholar Recruitment Programs
IOWA CITY, Iowa The University of Iowa Office of
Admissions has announced the appointment of Jill Hullinger to the position
of director of Scholar Recruitment Programs at the University of Iowa.
The position was created in 1997 in an effort to
better establish meaningful and ongoing communication between the university
and top scholar students, as well as more closely target and serve that population.
Hullinger, a native of Humeston, Iowa received her bachelor's
degree in communication studies from the UI in 1993, where she had been a
four-year member of the honors program. Since graduation she has worked as
an admission counselor at Northwest Missouri State University and then at
the UI. In 1998 she was promoted to the level of senior admission counselor
at the UI and assumed the increased administrative duties and counseling responsibilities
of that position. Through her admissions experience, Hullinger has traveled
extensively for the university and has been able to build relationships with
counselors and students throughout Iowa, Colorado and California.
She has also been actively involved with the Iowa
Association for College Admission Counseling since 1994. She has had progressive
involvement with committee work, chaired the programming committee for the
state conference and has routinely presented at both state and regional levels.
Currently, she is the chair of the professional development committee that
is charged with providing programming and professional growth opportunities
to the membership.
Hullinger is excited to begin work with a more defined
population. "I was involved with the honors program during my time at Iowa
and look forward to helping students explore the options available to them.
I still feel a strong commitment to the success of all students but am so
excited to focus on this group," she said.
