Kathy Dilks, Director of Graduate Admissions at Sacred Heart University, was elected vice president of the New England Association of Graduate Admissions Professionals (NEGAP) Thursday. Dilks was selected as the Association’s first vice president in a region-wide vote of over 70 graduate admissions professionals.

NEGAP is the official New England chapter of the National Association of Graduate Admissions Professionals. Established earlier this year, the chapter seeks to provide members in the six New England states a local resource for professional development, networking, and knowledge sharing related to the graduate admissions profession.

“I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Kathy,” NEGAP president-elect and founder Marcus Hanscom said. “Kathy is recognized as a leader in the field both here in the region and throughout the country, and I look forward to working with her as we fully establish NEGAP to serve the interests of our members.”

Dilks has 20 years of experience working in higher education including nearly 17 years serving the students of Sacred Heart University. She holds an M.S. in Counseling from Southern Connecticut State University and a B.A. in History and Art from New Jersey City University.
