Kellie Kane, director of operations and strategic planning in the Office of Admissions and Financial Aid (OAFA), has been promoted to director of admissions.
Her promotion is a more formal announcement of the areas she currently oversees: operations, data, projections, the admissions committee and the scholarship committee.
In her new capacity, Kane will sign all of Pitt’s admissions letters.
Marc Harding, chief enrollment officer, stated: “This promotion reflects the changing and important role she plays in the admission and enrollment of undergraduates. We will now have both a director of admissions and a director of financial aid (Randy McCready), which is the norm for an enrollment services office of Pitt’s size and complexity.”
Kane earned both her bachelor’s and MBA degrees from Pitt.
She began working full-time in OAFA in 1999. Since 2012, she has been helping OAFA become a leader in college and university enrollment management services by developing cutting-edge student-centered processes and practices. She is Pitt’s representative to the Association of Chief Admissions Officers at Public Universities, which is largely comprised of admissions directors.
