Reed College Selects VP to Attract Exceptional Students

Reed College is pleased to announce the appointment of Milyon Trulove as vice president and dean of admission and financial aid—a position charged with enrolling talented and diverse students to the college.

Trulove comes to Reed from Hamline University in Minnesota, where he has worked since 2008 and was dean of admission and financial aid. Prior to that, he worked for 10 years in admission at St. Olaf College, his alma mater. He also led the development of local, regional, and international recruitment and communications for the full-time MBA program at the Opus College of Business at the University of St. Thomas, where he received a master’s degree in higher education leadership.

“I’m looking forward to bringing my strengths and experiences to Reed,” says Trulove. “It’s an amazing institution where people are passionate about what they do.”

In announcing the selection, Kroger cited Trulove’s reputation for data-driven innovation, demonstrated team-building skills, and an ability to mentor. At Hamline, Trulove’s team successfully recruited the largest undergraduate classes to date and achieved the highest academic and diversity class profiles in the university’s history.

“Milyon is an effective admission leader with high integrity and a proven track record of success,” says President John Kroger. “I am excited to have him join our team at Reed.”
