“As director, Mettille will lead the Northland admissions staff in our efforts to grow student recruitment and retention,” said Rick Smith, vice president for institutional marketing and enrollment management.
Over the past two years, Northland’s admissions staff has grown the number of new entering freshman by 13 percent in 2011 and an additional 25 percent in 2012.
Mettille holds a master’s degree in communication and a bachelor’s degree in gender studies from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. He received the “Rising Star” award in 2011 from the National Association for College Admissions Counseling, and was recently appointed to serve on its Government Relations Committee.
“We have brought one of the nation’s best young admissions professionals to Northland. In his new role, I’m sure he will continue to build on his already stellar background and experience through his admissions work for the College, as well as his service to the community,” said Smith. “We are pleased he, his partner, David, and son, Logan, will be joining us at Northland and the Chequamegon Bay region.”
Mettille just completed his term as a board member for the Wisconsin Association of College Admissions Counseling and service as a co-chairman for its Government Relations Committee. He has also served as an adjunct faculty member at FoxValley Technical College.
