Marks Named as Vice President of Admissions, Athletics, and Financial Aid
Trinity Christian College is pleased to announce Andrew Marks as the new Vice President of Admissions, Athletics, and Financial Aid. Marks comes to Trinity with a wealth of experience in the higher education sector.
Marks began his career at Calumet College of St. Joseph following his time as a student at the college. After 22 years at Calumet, holding various roles across the college, he is eager to bring the expertise he has gained to Trinity. “I have really enjoyed working in many different roles over the years and have a strong understanding of the many facets within higher education,” stated Marks. “Bringing this knowledge to my role at Trinity is exciting and gives me energy; I hope to bring that same energy to the team and look forward to learning from them along the way.”
He holds a Master of Science in Management with a concentration in organizational leadership, a Bachelor of Science in Computer Information Systems, and a Bachelor of Science in Business Management, all from Calumet College of St. Joseph. His various roles over the years have given way to a unique skill set for this leadership position. Marks spent several of his years as Sports Information Director, Assistant Athletic Director, Head Coach for both Men’s and Women’s Volleyball, and later Director of Enrollment Management. Most recently, he served as Assistant Vice President for Athletics and Enrollment and served on the board of trustees at the college from 2017 – 2021.
“Andrew brings a unique blend of student focus, leadership acumen, strategic thinking, and collegiality. His high value for the transformational potential of faith-based higher education, his firsthand experience of the formational value of athletics for our student-athletes and the wider community, his commitment to eliminating barriers to college access, and his desire to work with colleagues from across departments are notable,” said President Aaron Kuecker.
Marks is excited about the future of Trinity Christian College. He feels confident that now is the right time to join the team and work towards the vision of what higher education will look like in the future. “Giving students an option to work towards a debt-free degree is unbelievable, but it’s exactly what is needed. I can’t wait to get to work with the team to push that mission forward together,” concluded Marks.
The opportunity for Marks to join Trinity’s mission followed Jeanine Mozie’s transition from Vice President of Enrollment to her new position as Chief of Staff to the President.
