A man who’s been recruiting current and retired service members for Chadron State College the past two years has been named the school’s interim Vice President for Enrollment Management and Markets.
Jon Hansen fills, at least on an interim basis, the post held by CSC President Dr Randy Rhine before being named first interim and then permanent president last year.
Hansen is a retired Army officer with over 22 years of executive leadership, including 10 at state colleges and universities in Nebraska, Illinois, and South Dakota, and who was an ROTC professor of military science for CSC and 3 other schools in the Black Hills.
Dr Rhine says he’s “thrilled” to bring aboard someone with Hansen’s background and knowledge of Chadron State, and confident Hansen will help the school reach its objectives for the coming year. In addition to his regular duties as vice-president, Rhine plans to use Hansen on special projects and initiatives from the president’s office.
Hansen, in turn, says he’s proud to continue his service to the college and excited about the opportunity to lead the CSC Enrollment Management Team…calling them “great folks who care a great deal about helping students and the college.”
He says “continuous improvement, teamwork, and hard work” will will allow the school to continue to grow its enrollment. .
Hansen and his wife, Laura, have been married for 20 years and have three children at home: David, Jon W. and Elizabeth.
