“Mr. Young has years of experience in enrollment management and service to students,” said Lynette Olson, provost and vice president for academic affairs. “We believe his enthusiasm and experience will serve Pittsburg State very well in this important role.”

Young is responsible for the university’s strategic enrollment management initiatives. He oversees various student support services that focus on student recruitment and retention, including admissions, academic advisement, student financial assistance, student diversity, the registrar, international programs, student accommodations and the Honors College.

Young earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in history from Jackson State University. He expects to complete his Ph.D. in urban higher education leadership, also from Jackson State, this year.
