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.
