NSU Dean joins ACHE board of directors

(Broken Arrow, Okla.)--Dr. Tim McElroy, dean of the Northeastern State University-Muskogee campus, was recently elected to the board of directors at the Association for Continuing Higher Education (ACHE).

McElroy, along with two others, was chosen to serve a three-year term from a field of nine, national candidates. He assumes his new role at the ACHE international conference in November in St. Louis.

He has served as dean at the Muskogee campus since June 1, 1999 and became involved with ACHE in 2007 while directing the state-wide Reach Higher, degree completion program.

Reach Higher is a consortium of nine regional universities and 14 community colleges throughout Oklahoma.

His ACHE involvement includes serving as both chair-elect and chair of the Great Plains Region and as a member of the planning committee for international conferences in Albuquerque, Las Vegas and St. Louis.

“It is an honor to be selected by my peers to serve in this important capacity. ACHE is dedicated to lifelong learning and I’m a firm believer in helping people better themselves by either earning certification or completing a degree,” McElroy stated.

McElroy received his doctorate in higher education administration from Oklahoma State University and both a master’s and bachelor’s degree from NSU.

Before coming to NSU as a dean, he held positions as public information director, director of high school and college relations and director of admissions and registrar at four other institutions.
