Wabash College President Andrew T. Ford has announced that Scott Crawford has been named the new director of the Schroeder Career Center at Wabash College. Crawford replaces Rosalind Lister, who resigned the position in April.
Crawford comes to Wabash from Johns Hopkins University, where he served for more than three years as director of career services for the School of Professional Studies in Business and Education. At Johns Hopkins, Crawford managed the recruiting and employer relations activities of the office and oversaw the day-to-day operations of the center and its staff.
“We are quite pleased that Scott will join us,” said Dean of Students Tom Bambrey. “He brings a strong background, including work in a liberal-arts setting, and I believe our students will find him enthusiastic in his approach to assisting them with their career planning. Scott will reach out to students as we strengthen and extend our efforts in the Schroeder Career Center.”
Crawford’s career services experience has been at a variety of both public and private institutions. Prior to Johns Hopkins, Crawford was the associate director of the Graduate Career Center for the School of Business and Public Management at the George Washington University in Washington DC. He also served as the director of career services at Adrian College in Michigan, and as the assistant director of career services at Wichita State University in Kansas. He began his career as a career counselor at Valdosta State University in Georgia.
“Scott has liberal arts experience as well, having served as the Director of Career Services at Adrian College in Michigan,” said Associate Dean of Students Mike Raters, who works closely with the Schroeder Center staff. “We are excited to have Scott joining us here at the College, and we look forward to working with him to advance the initiatives put forth by the Career Services Advisory Group and the Strategic Plan.”
Crawford earned his bachelor’s degree from the University of Arkansas in business administration and human resources. He earned his master’s degree in higher education administration from Arkansas, where he had a concentration in student personnel.
